I'm happy to post I've brewed my best batch yet, a brown porter, recipe taken from BCS.

My dad said he preferred it over Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter.

It is pretty cool when you pour a pint and can honestly say you could imagine being served it at a local bar and you wouldn't think twice. Probably my first batch I could say that to.

Yes, that beer is awesome! I'm making that recipe myself in September. I love that brown porter, and consider it one of my top 5 favorites especially for fall.

I remember my first batch like that. I was crushed when the keg kicked. I'm still surprised that beer didn't win awards, but I know the feeling. It was an amazing moment to take the first fully carbonated, conditioned sip of that IPA and go "I made exactly what I set out to, nobody else makes this beer, and it's better than anything anyone else is putting out right now. I wish I could buy this at the local pub."

I'm drinking the beer that gave me that exact feeling. I even posted a thread like this one! It was an IPA that I couldn't believe I had made its good! Down to about 6 liters of the stuff.

Nice job! My last one was a brown porter that missed the mark. Seemed overly bready. Couldn't tell if it was the brown malt or the yeast.

I think you'll enjoy it! Definitely on my list of recipes to brew again.

Problem is, my list of recipes to brew for the first time is so large! Ha!
