I found this basic Porter recipie http://www.beertools.com/html/recipe.php?view=8817 and was thinking about adding some hibiscus in to it, I was a little fuzzy on just how much and when! Can someone gimme a hand? Or if anyone has a better recipie I'm all ears! Or if adding hibiscus is a bad combo with a porter I'll take that info to!! Thanks everyone!

P.s it's been like 6 months since I brewed and I can't wait until the weekend!!

When I've used teas in beers, 2-3 bags seems to be enough. I add them at 5 minutes.
