Atonement Brown Porter

Type: All Grain
Date: 1/17/2011
Batch Size: 5.50 gal
Brewer: Sonny
Boil Size: 6.5 gal
Boil Time: 60
Brewhouse Efficiency: 83% (higher than intended)

Ingredients

UK Maris Otter 7.5lbs
UK Brown Malt 2.5lbs
US Black Malt .6lbs

UK Fuggle 3.9AA 1.5oz @ 60min
UK Fuggle 3.9AA .5oz @ 5min

1 pkgs Wyeast 1028 London Ale

Mash Profile

Mash Name: Single Infusion, Batch Sparge 152║F

Single Infusion, Batch Sparge
60 min Mash In Add 4.25gal of water at 167║F
Sparge with 3.5gal of water at 153║F

This batch won Gold in the East for Category 12 and also the combined Category in the Best of Show Round. My efficiency was much higher than expected - 83%. The recipe is planned for 70%.

I had previously made this recipe twice. The first time I used much less Brown Malt, but I felt like it lacked something. The second time I brewed this same recipe but added chili peppers after primary fermentation. If you are so inclined, that batch was also awesome. For this batch, I obviously skipped the chili peppers, but the extra brown malt was a good addition.

Note: I do not secondary any of my ales. This beer was in the primary fermentor for 21 days. I feel this results in a complete, clean fermentation that produces a nice clear, tasty beer.

I tried to link the .XML and PDF for this recipe, but it wouldn't let me. If anyone is interested, PM me an email address and I will send you the .XML.

I like the sound of this one, I might try to brew it up this weekend. I've been wanting to try out using brown malt to get a feel for it, and this is a nice simple grain bill to show that off. Thanks for posting your recipe Airborneguy!

Quick question though, is black malt and black patent malt the same thing or is there a difference?

You might get a slight color difference depending on the maltster, but it won't be anything worth worrying about. I believe black patent is the traditional English name for the malt, but they are the same.

Let me know how it turns out. This is a great, simple, tasty recipe.

I will be serving this up for the 4th for family and friends. It just finished carbing up in the keg yesterday, and I must say this is going to be a huge hit! Airborneguy really hit the nail on the head with this recipe. It tasted fantastic. It' very smooth with a great coffee/roasty finish. I didn't change a thing from your recipe and I am glad I didn't.

Thanks for the great compliment! I'm very glad you liked it and hope you do also. If you are into it, I've also brewed this and added a few chilis to a secondary to give it a slight kick. That came out great also.

Well I finally got this brewed and kegged (hate with life gets in the way of my brewing plans!) I used Willamette hops since I grow them and had a bunch on hand.

Its got a lovely roast flavor / aroma that is complimented by a touch of sweetness from the brown malt. Delicious and very distinct from the more common chocolate/caramel malt porters.

Thanks for the recipe Airborneguy - I can see why it won you an award!

Cheers!

Again, thanks, and I'm glad it worked for you too. It's a great recipe, and I won't be making any changes to it anytime soon, that's for sure. Enter it into a competition!

I brewed this 3 weeks ago and tasted some before bottling and it tasted amazing. I can't wait to have this carbonated.
