I'd like even the non-beer drinkers to have a pint or two of this. Biermuncher, would you think adding some more C40L give it some noticable sweetness? Or is it better to use a less attenuative yeast?

Bottled my first batch today. What was left at the bottom of the bucket tasted smooth & delicious. FG was 1.022....after starting at 1.064. Given the amount of non-fermentables in the recipe, I called that done & capped 'em.

Had to crack open the first tube last night and try it out. Getting good carbonation, still very smooth, great flavor & aroma. This one's a keeper!

BierMuncher, I just cracked a few of bottles of your porter this weekend and they are amazing! I brought some to a housewarming and even the light beer drinkers loved it.

This is a recipe that must be brewed again! It is my favourite beer at the moment. Really works with the winter season.

LHBS did not have any malto-dextrine so I subbed 12 oz of Cara-Pils (my beer has awesome head retention btw). I also couldn't get 1028 for yeast so I used 1968 London ESB Ale yeast. Otherwise same recipe.
OG: 1.075
FG: 1.022
ABV: 6.93% not that you can tell until your drunk on your third beer.

Great to hear they turned out well.

I just made this last night, it is probably the best tasting wort I have made so far. I added some toasted coconut to it, I am very excited to taste the final product. Thanks for the recipe!!

Making this one in the morning using Maris Otter since that is what I have as my go to base malt. After all the positive reviews I can't wait to give it a try.

Best brew day yet!

BM didn't put an efficiency that I saw but I know he said 70 on his Cent. Blonde so I assumed 63% for this brew which gave an estimated OG of 1.067. I hit 1.068 so not a bad guess. Everything went really smooth. Had the water going for the mash at 11:30 and was done cleaning up by 4 so not a bad all grain day.

We got the mash going and went to the store for some beers and some ice for the IC, came home and got the sparge water heating, ordered a pizza and enjoyed our day. Enjoyed a Great Devide Yeti while we mashed while my brew partner had a Kern Just Outstanding IPA, then we had a Tits Up IPA by none other than BM followed by a Pliny the Elder for each. No hiccups at all by far the smoothest brew day yet. 60 out and the sun was shining.

Happy Turkey day all.

Brewed this today. Got an OG of 1.066. Only mistake I made was I forgot to mash the flaked oats. Was teaching a friend and forgot about them. Hope it doesn't mess it up too much.
