Default Holy Smokes Porter

Recipe Type: All Grain
Category: Robust Porter
Yeast: S-05
Yeast Starter: Nah
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.068
Final Gravity: 1.015
IBU: 33.0
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 27.2 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14
Additional Fermentation: none
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 days carbing in keg
Tasting Notes: After the 7 days of carbing and cooling this is one fantastic brew. 21 days kettle/glass is not bad for a beer like this.

Had some friends over that usually go for the Pale Ale types, and they put a serious hurt in my keg. Good excuse to rebrew...I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe.


8 lbs Marris Otter (61.5%)
3 lbs Cherry Wood Smoked Malt (23.1%)
.75 lb Caramel 60L (5.8%)
.5 lb Chocolate Malt (3.8%)
.25 lb Black Patent (1.9%)
.5 lb White Sugar 15 mins before flameout for added ABV

0.5 oz Summit 60 mins
1.0 oz Liberty 15 mins

This looks yummy. How many times have you brewed this? and what exactly are you going for with the sugar? Does it need the drying out or higher abv kick?

just brewed it once. with the sugar i was going just for an ABV kick. don't think i'd put it in next time so i could test out the original recipe...it was a last minute whim. i'm guessing it dried the taste out a bit too.

one thing i definitely want to try is the typical 8 oz of maltodextrin at 15 mins, just to see what it adds to it to mouthfeel.

the smoke flavor is definitely right on. it's more than a hint, but not like drinking a campfire.
