further FURTHER more...

Pale Ale was a term created to differentiate normal ales (what would today be called a porter) from the new style that was very light in color.

So.. in the beginning there was the porter. Praise be to the porter (my favorite style of beer.)

One of my favorite styles, too. If you love Porters, try and find some Edmund Fitzgerald Porter from Great Lakes Brewing in your area. It is my favorite domestic porter that is readily available on the store shelves where I live.

In my extremely humble opinion, Walker's Stout would be just the thing. Personally, I'd leave the brown sugar in. More sugar = more alcohol ( to some extent) = Winter warmer, or a warmer winter.... Stout is the ticket for cold nights around the campfire. The addition of coffee just brings the beer to life and adds a new dimension to it. I did a batch like that a while back and have one bottle left. Saving it for a special occasion.

No, man. I went and introduced myself. Told them I was an alcoholic. They clapped and cheered for me. I didn't want to let them down, they being so proud of me , and all. I came home and doubled my brewing efforts. Maybe I'll go again one day. It was very encouraging.

This hobby has attracted the attention of my best friend. Yesterday we got silly with it. We took the Goat Scrotum porter recipe from the Joy of Homebrewing. We left out the brewing licorice, spruce essence,and szechuan peppers. So we added white chocalate, three times the juniper berries, two fresh vanilla beans, and three dried habanero peppers. I am laughing while behind me the blow off tube in the water is going crazy. And with all that this was not difficult at all. I have been into all grain stouts and imperial stouts so this was the first time in a while to use extracts. It was fun you wanted something good i think this would be perfect for you. We hopped the heck out of it too.
