Here's something I came up with. Let me know what you guys think.
Heated 1.5 gal of water to 170. 2lbs of Chocolate patent malt was then steeped in a grain sack at 150 for 45minutes. The grain sack was removed and the wort was brought to a boil.
I then added:
3lb of Dark DME
3lb of Dark LME
This was boiled for 45minutes.
1 ounce of Cascade pellets
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla
1 Tablespoon of Baking Chocolate
and boiled for an additional 15 minutes.
Brought it up to a final volume of 5.75g. Cooled to 75, added a pack of muntons dry yeast , waited 10min and stirred it all in. FG was 1.047.
After about 5 hrs it was bubbling away in my bucket fermenter and it smells nice. Hope it makes a nice Porter/Stout.
Anything obviously wrong? Comments?
