I personally don't like crystal/caramel in my porter. I like mine dry and slightly roasted, so I only use black patent. My recipe is under my name if you are interested in checking it out.

Ah cool, looks good, I see a lot of porters go for the brown + black combo instead of chocolate. I haven't brewed with brown - does it taste significantly different to chocolate?

I've chosen my selection largely based on the ingredients I happen to have in stock at the moment. I can't make my mind up whether I want much caramel in there at the moment, I'll see how I feel when I come to brew it tomorrow and maybe knock back the crystal a bit
