I'd like to do this as an 8 gallon batch but am not confident in my Brewtarget-fu.

Did this scale properly?

Black Pearl Porter - Robust Porter
================================================== ==============================
Batch Size: 8.000 gal
Boil Size: 10.000 gal
Boil Time: 0.000 s

ABV: 5.4%
Bitterness: 12.6 IBUs (Tinseth)
Color: 25 SRM (Mosher)

Fermentables
================================================== ==============================
Name Type Amount Mashed Late Yield Color
Pale Malt (6 Row) US Grain 12.000 lb Yes No 76% 2 L
Munich Malt - 10L Grain 3.000 lb Yes No 77% 10 L
Caramel/Crystal Malt - 30L Grain 16.000 oz Yes No 75% 30 L
Chocolate Malt (UK) Grain 16.000 oz Yes No 73% 450 L

Fuggles 4.5% 1.200 oz Boil 1.000 hr 11.9
Fuggles 4.5% 0.800 oz Boil 2.000 min 0.7

Yeast
================================================== ==============================
Name Type Form Amount Stage
Safale S-04 Ale Dry 0.388 oz Primary

Mash
================================================== ==============================
Name Type Amount Target Time
Conversion Step, 68C Infusion 5.625 gal 154.400 F 1.000 hr
Batch Sparge Infusion 6.965 gal 170.799 F 15.000 min

Instructions
================================================== ==============================
0) Add 12.000 lb Pale Malt (6 Row) US, 3.000 lb Munich Malt - 10L, 16.000 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 30L, 16.000 oz Chocolate Malt (UK), 16.000 oz Oats, Flaked, to the mash tun.

1) Bring 5.625 gal water to 167.322 F, 6.965 gal water to 186.690 F, for upcoming infusions.
2) Add 5.625 gal water at 167.322 F to mash to bring it to 154.400 F. Hold for 1.000 hr.
3) Add 6.965 gal water at 186.690 F to mash to bring it to 170.799 F. Hold for 15.000 min.
4) You should now have 10.000 gal wort. Add 0.000 tsp water to the kettle, bringing pre-boil volume to 10.000 gal.
5) Bring the wort to a boil and hold for 1.000 hr.
6) Put 1.200 oz Fuggles into boil for 1.000 hr.
7) Put 0.800 oz Fuggles into boil for 2.000 min.
8) You should have 8.250 gal wort post-boil.
You anticipate losing 1.000 qt to trub and chiller loss.
The final volume in the primary is 8.000 gal.
9) Cool wort and pitch Safale S-04 Ale yeast, to the primary.
10) Let ferment until FG is 1.014.
11) Transfer beer to secondary.

Let it ferment until it's done fermenting(eg: the gravity is the same for a few days in a row). It may be close to 1.014, but it may never hit that or it may go lower, don't get stuck on a specific number for your FG.

Anyway, I just brewed this up this afternoon, and the hydro sample tastes very impressive. Just curious how long you all let this one age in secondary before bottling?

Well, yeah. That's how Brewtarget formatted the instructions. The expected FG just gets dropped into that narrative step-by-step.

Just checking. I read that and instantly saw perfectly good bottles of beer exploding I'll sleep better tonight now

I wondering this as well! I know Biermuncher has stated 70 efficiency in other recipes, so maybe thats it? I am showing a 1067 at 70%. I get about 78% efficency so I am going to drop the 2-row a pound and hope it doesn't change this recipe too much

Nice sig.

My dad has passed -'96. He brewed his own on occasion. Very Pabst-like.
FIL - ...He only drinks Busch Light or Bed Light. He likes my rootbeer though. I use less sugar.

Brewed my first batch this morning. Was hinky about mashing at 158F, so did 156F. Subbed in C40L for the C30L....otherwise, everything pretty normal. Hit OG of 1.064 inclusive of malto-dextrose and Lactose (which of course will not attenuate). Expect to finish in the 1.020 ballpark.

Thanks!

I made this yesterday, with 1lb less 2-row and the C40. Came out pretty well, had thermometer issues so hopefully it is on for the amount fermentable vs non fermentable sugars. Got 1068 OG. Used Wyeast 1084 Irish ale, cause i had washed some from my stout
