Thank you.

I'm glad everyone likes it. Just be advised that it's hit or miss in competitions. This is one of those recipes that doesn't perfectly fit any of the categories of porter. I consider it a brown, but in a few comps it's been called out of style.

I brewed this on Saturday. I was growing a bit concerned today because it seemed as though my fermentation had stalled. I checked the gravity and astonishingly it was already done. The sample tasted awesome for such a green beer. I am really excited for this one! I did replace the yeast with Burton's from WLP. Everything else was a copy of your original recipe. I fermented at 68F but it still finished a lot faster than I was expecting.

I'm going to let it sit in primary for a while to clean up still.

Is the black patent de-husked or no?

So what were the results of the comp way back when? And who was judging it? I'm curious.

Oops, sorry I never responded. I've pretty much been working non-stop since the day you posted this.

In the 2011 HBT competition, this recipe won the porter category. In 3 other comps, it never even placed, although it always gets good scores. The problem is it really doesn't fit the guidelines for any of the porter categories close enough to win competitions that are more strict about adhering to the guidelines.

I don't enter competitions anymore. I don't have the time to brew based on competition schedules, set up shipping, deal with all the waiting... Just not my thing any longer.

I picked this recipe for my first all grain batch and first batch in 10 years. Everything turned out great so far, my OG was 1.054. I had to switch to a blow off tube when my air lock filled with Trub(?). Thanks for the recipe.

I hope you enjoy it. We were drinking this beer last night for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. I haven't brewed much lately but I have a recently "tapped" batch of Atonement on hand now.

Bottled this yesterday. It was really nice. I edited the recipe a bit to shrink it to 3.5 gallons and not have weird measurements. Also used Windsor yeast. Came out really nice. Mine was more stout then porter, almost true black but that's my fault for messing with the recipe. Taste fantastic though. Almost like sweetened coffee. Can't wait for it to be carved. Not sure how close it is to yours but I would like to thank you for the start. This is going into the wheelhouse if it comes out of bottles anywhere near how it went in.
