St Peter's is an English import in that cool green 16oz bottle, right? I've tried everything they make (except the porter), and every single beer I've had from them has been skunked. Let me know how this clone works out--I bet that unskunked this beer tastes totally awesome.

Yeah, I'd like a clone of St. Peter's porter too. I bought it for the cool bottle, and was surprised with a great beer.

Well, add me to the "me too" chorus. I bought a couple of bottles from Total Wine & Beverage near me, and it's one of the best porters I've ever had!

Word of warning, though - I bought it for the cool bottle, too, and that label is a witch to remove. Had to resort to Goof-Off.

skunking seems to typically occur with beers in bottles that are not brown...i.e. green, clear, etc...literally when you open the bottle it has a bit of a skunky smell and taste...i'm from appalachia so the smell of a skunk is easily recognizeable (haha)...the skunkiness isn't desirable obviously...i've had skunked beers from companies such as heineken, new castle, etc...although those beers aren't always skunked...their bottles make them susceptible due to the abilty of sunlight to enter their green and clear bottles, respectively...

Yeah, skunked is when the beer is overexposed to light (sometimes heat fluctuation). It smells like a skunk and tastes like crap too.

Anyone ever find a clone of this fantastic beer? I just got back from England and I had one while there, absolutely loved the stuff.

I think I might have found a ProMash recipe, but for some reason I can't get it to load into my demo version. If you have ProMash I can forward the file to you and you can see if it works. And then of course if it does, we'll be brewin'.
