Just like the other lastest on here. I have some leftover hops that I want to use in a recipe. I'd like to do something similiar to a ESB, brown ale or porter. I know I would need a amber or Dark LME probably 7 lbs, but I'm not sure of what and how much malt to use. Nor a schedule to brew it.

Would something like this work for a porter?

7 lbs of Amber LME
0.5 lbs of crystal 120L malt
0.5 lbs of chocolate malt
0.25 lbs of black patent malt

I also have 1.5 lbs of honey I could drop in with the LME????

This is what I have. I have no real idea of the schedule

1.5 ounces of Golding Hops 4.4% boiling 60 minutes
0.5 ounces of Northern Brewers 10.2% boiling 10 minutes
0.5 ounces of Mt Hood 6.7% boiling for 15 minutes
0.5 ounces of Chinook 12.4% boiling for 5 minutes

I really don't have a clue if this would work, I was just going off of the percentages....

Can someone maybe review this, give me some thoughts and possibly the numbers. OG, FG, SRM etc. what I could expect from this?

Thanks guys... Pete

Here is is calculated with what I think would be a good hop schedule.

It looks pretty good to me.

I wouldn't, but adjuncts were common in porters.

I think the amber LME will work very well. Many people would say to just use regular LME (because you may not know what is in the amber) and add specialty malts. Briess is just 2-row with some Munich and crystal 60L.
