I know the IBU's seem low, but the roasted malts in this lend their own bitterness. Trust me...if you want something on the rich and malty side with a hint of sweetness...this will be great.

Thanks for the quick answer BM. Like I said in my first post, all of your recipes that I've made have been great . I just hadn't seen a recipe with such low IBUs before. I will post again when this beer is done.

So I wanted to add some licorice to this but wasn't sure how to proceed, 1 stick during the boil? Will it over sweeten the beer or add flavor? Should I use star anise instead? I'm looking forward to brewing this.

Does anyone have this recipe in either promash or beersmith using a flysparge? I want to compare with mine. I have 5 gals conditioning now, its looking good so far, can't wait to taste it.

I'm really curious about the sparge, you mashed out at 175, would you still sparge at 168 or 175? Why so high?

Just bottled this last night. Ended up with 61 12 oz. bottles ! OG was 1.064 and FG was 1.028 for an ABV of 4.7. Tasted awesome and I am looking forward to "testing" one next week. Thanks again for the recipe BM !

Hmmmm. Hard to tell.

A typical back and tan requires a lighter ABV on top (Dry Stout) and a heavier ABV on the bottom (Pale Ale). Using a Porter at around 5.5+ and a similar ABV pale might get you too close for clear separation.

That was my fear, but I thought it had to do with final gravitys and not abv... Are the FGs for these too beers close also? They sound like they would be so go together!

Just had a glass of this last night and it is great. I only made 2 1/2 gals so I could try out my party pig.

Now I have to make a 5 gal batch because the wife loved it also.

thanks again BM
