This will be my first Porter, I've researched a lot of recipes, and here is what i've come up with....

Target OG is 1.060, Mash at 154*

8-1/2lbs 2 Row
1/2lb Chocolate Malt
1/4lb Black Patent
1/2lb Flaked Barley
1/2lb Special B

1oz Magnum @ 60 for 49IBU's

I will most likely use US-05. Primary for two weeks at 65ish, then Secondary for a week at room temp with 1/4lb of Whole Espresso Beans.

whaddaya think? Thanks

Is that chocolate malt or just just regular chocolate you have listed in the recipe?

Sounds tasty to me. I'm fickle about porters.... it's my favorite style, but I find myself only enjoying a very small number of commercial ones.

You'll find a bunch of different suggestions for how to handle the coffee part of it. I personally used fresh-brewed espresso as the liquid for my priming solution when I made a coffee stout several years ago.
