Here is a link to my thread about converting this to extract using a stovetop mash / sparge

Hope this helps another brewer!

This looks like a great recipe.. I've been meaning to brew up a good, sweet porter..

is there any easy way to convert this to a Partial Mash?

SWMBO has declared this beer "better than every other porter or stout except Barney Flats". The bottles are disappearing rapidly. Thanks for the killer recipe BierMuncher!

If you want to drive it northeast 2.5 hours when its done my feelings wouldn't be hurt. I'm going to tinker a little bit on the next batch (coming up very soon) because my efficiency was ridiculous (92%) and I massively overshot the OG and wound up at 7.4% abv. Also, I'd like to work some Special B into the recipe. I did wind up first wort hopping with the fuggles rather than sticking to your hop schedule and the bitterness is totally imperceptible and now I'm wondering what would happen if I shifted the 2 minute addition to 20 minutes to cut the aroma pick up some flavor and move the IBU's up a titch. Again, prost on the killer recipe!

I just made a batch of this today. It is only my third all grain batch and my first try with fly sparging, my first two were batch sparges. If the OG sample is any indication (and I'm sure it is) this beer is going to be delicious. I did make one change and added an ounce of Galena bittering hops at the beginning of the boil instead of the 1/2 ounce of fuggles to make it a little more hoppy. Thanks for the great recipe I'll update when the beer is ready to drink.

That's just fine. This recipe is low on IBU's as far as BJCP standards go so upping the bitterness will be okay.
