Default Mild Mannered Porter

So before getting into this recipe I have to pay homage to Orfy and his Mild Mannered Ale

All-Grain - Mild Mannered Ale (AG) (E) UK/US - Home Brew Forums

The following recipe was my first attempt at Orfy's Mild ale, but as you can see it turned into a Brown Porter. I brewed his Mild later on and it was quite delicious. Thankfully even though I messed several things up on this initial recipe, it still turned into a good brew and is now in my regular rotation. So here it as follows:

So as you can see I had a Mash of 156 and then added a gallon of boiling water at the end to loosen up the mash, which brought it to about 160F. Then I did a double batch sparge to get to my volume.
I did a 90 minute boil and added my additions of Fuggle at 60 mins. and 15 mins. Also added 1-Whirfloc tab and 1/2 Teaspoon of Wyeast nutrient.
Cooled to 65F and pitched S-04 on top of the wort.
I usually leave this in primary for 7 days and then to secondary for 14 days
I have just left it in the primary for 14 days and then kegged it. This brew is ready by the month mark. S-04 is some fast fermenting stuff.
Also just as a note you can see my effeciency is around 94%. For those who get around 75% you will want to add a pound or two extra of Marris Otter. I regularly get 90%-95% effeciency with small grain bills using the double batch sparge system.

All Grain Primer

Great step by step process from Bobby_M (Thanks!)

On tasting:

Aroma: Malty, Chocolate comes through alot, slight caramelly, slight hop aroma,

Appearance: Light Brown, clear (if you throw into a secondary), light tan head w/ decent retention

Flavor: Malt driven with Mild roastiness and chocolate comes through in first gulp, slight sweetness from the caramel malt, medium hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: Medium-light body and I put some moderately high carbonation on this (2.4). Just my preference though

I will throw some pictures up here sometime. I have never submitted this to be judged, just not my thing. Give it a whirl, it is a cheap grain bill and you wont be disappointed.

Cheers Yall
