Just drop in the vodka, you want to remove the bean from the alcohol...for a while it will extract flavors but with any fruit/vegetable it will eventually start to give unwanted flavors

I didn't see this recipe in the database so I thought I would post it, because it's a damn fine Porter! This comes from the North American Clone Brews book and is a very close and enjoyable cloned recipe!

Original Gravity = 1057
Final Gravity = 1012
ABV = 5.7%
IBU = 55-60
SRM = 29
Size = 5.25 gallon

ALL GRAIN RECIPE:

8 lbs Pale Malt
.75 lbs Crystal Malt 50l
.5 lbs Chocolate Malt
.5 lbs Roasted Barley

Bring to Boil and add:
7 AAU's of Northern Brewer Hops
Boil 30 minutes then add:
4 AAU's of Fuggles Hops
Boil 30 minutes then add:
4 AAU's of Cascade Hops
Boil 30 minutes then add:
4 AAU's of Cascade Hops

Cool 5.25 gallons of wort down to 65 degrees and pitch:
Wyeast 1968

Ferment for two weeks, transfer to a secondary and cool condition (50-55 degrees) for 3 to 4 weeks...keg/bottle and drink at (recommended serving temp) 50 degrees!

To figure out how much hops you need, please use this calculator: http://realbeer.com/hops/bcalc_js.html

If you need partial mash or extract conversion let me know!
Can I get the partial mash & extract conversions? Thanks

6lb of Pale Malt extract to sub Pale Malt, keep the rest of the grain the same and place in a grain bag...hope this helps.

Might be a stupid question but I am assuming this is a 90min boil?

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but I'm getting ready to do a porter, and this one looks promising!

However, I had a question about the boil time. It's been mentioned that this is a 90 minute boil - no problem, I can do that. But out of curiosity: why 90 minutes?

I assume the 90 minute boil is determined by the hops additions? Won't you get the same bitterness amounts (and no flavor or aroma) from the first two additions? If that's the case, why not add both the Northern Brewer and Fuggles at the same time, and cut the boil time by 30 minutes?

Is the prolonged boil intended to boil off a certain amount of water? If so, what (pre-boil) starting volume should I aim for? (Should I just figure out how much I boil off per hour, and plan for 5.25 gallons + trub loss + boil loss?)

Thanks!

Since this came from a clone book I can't assume to know all the reasons for the boil time, however I would summarize that it's to marry the flavors in a way that mimic the beer being cloned. I followed the instructions to the letter and made a damn good beer!

I figured that might be the case - and I imagine I'll follow the instructions as well. But I was just curious because (as I understand it) there shouldn't be any difference in flavor or aroma for anything boiled past 60 minutes. So I'm curious if anyone has any insight as to why this would make any difference. Can you get more bitterness amounts by boiling longer than 60 minutes? Any other reason for the longer boil time?

(I just figure I may as well use this recipe as a learning exercise, if anyone has any insight.)

Sorry for the dumb question, but could someone tell me how to convert the aau's to oz's for the hops? Not sure how to do this, and I really want to try this recipe.
