Default Zippy's Brown / Porter


Finally have nailed my porter recipe after more than a year. First recipe I am posting here because I believe it is awesome both times Ive made it and it is worth sharing. 30 Days from brew date to pint. Amazing stuff. (never had a darker beer taste so good, so early)


- Zippy Porter 2013 -

10lb 2 Row US Pale
2lb Munich Organic 10L
.4lb Crystal 40L
.4lb Crystal 75L
.6lb Belgian Chocolate
.2lb Black

.5oz Magnum .5oz EKG (60)
1oz EKG (5)


Mash 4.5 gal @ 151
Sparge 4.5gal @ 185

Pacman 1.5L Starter

_____________________________

Same Recipe but lose the black Patent and bump up the mash temp. I am drinking the porter now and will probably mash @ 152 next time for just a bit more sweetness, but this is a DAMN FINE PORTER. As good as any commercial American Porters I've tried, Reminds me of Ballast Point Black Marlin Porter, but I know they use Cascade. TASTY.

The Brown when mashed @ 153 gives a massive malty-chocolate flavor on the palate, but not overwhelming as my brother in law does not care much for browns and really enjoyed this. I love the chocolate and munich combo, just MONEY!

The Pacman is the real treat here, does not mask malty flavors as I thought it might. Hops shine here as well, just as they should. This is the new house strain for me. Browns, Porters, AB Clone, IPAs. All Great!

Hope you brew one,
Zippy. Cheers!
