I have grown VERY fond of Flying Dog Brewery's Road Dog. It's a Scottish Porter but I can't say that its like any other I've ever tried. I'd highly suggest it to anyone who hasn't tried such.

Anywho, I just found and purchased an extract clone kit from Austins. Don't know much about it but am anxious to give it a try... Does anyone have a ProMash recipe for this beer? I'd be interested in giving that a try next if its available.

I guess I'll resurect this thread in several months to give everyone the lowdown on their clone kit.

I brewed 20 gallons of this from a modified Austin HBS extract recipe. I added a couple pounds of dark extract to make up for the lack of the full 5.5# of amber per batch at my LHBS that day.
I'm plugging it into BeerSmith2 right now so that I can try it AG in a couple weekends.
I love this beer! Actually, I love it so much, I am going to use it as a base for my soon-to-be-lifelong-quest for a flagship house dream porter.

Does Road Dog fit any kind of "official" Style?
Brown Porter (12A)?
Robust Porter (12B)?

Anyway, this is my slightly modified version. It is not all that far off from a straight off the sheet from AHBS and converted.

White Labs WLP028, Edinburgh Ale.

The krausen looked like something I wanted to eat with a spoon!
I have it aging now and can not wait until I tap it. Possibly next weekend.
