I just pulled a couple of these of the kegerator and compared with EF. It's pretty damn close. The jury is still out as to whether or not this EF clone will get you EF or not.

Looks like a nice robust porter, and given all of the hoopla attributed to EF, I am brewing up a 5.5 gallon version of this recipe today. Anything you would do differently on the next version?

I'm the biggest critic of my beers, and to be perfectly honest there's nothing that I would change about this recipe right now. I've only made it once, but it's a great full-bodied robust porter with nice chocolate and roasty notes that's really balanced quite well.

I had a poker party at my house last night and this beer was a huge hit - even with the "I don't like dark beer', BMC crowd. I'm going to have to do a search for BM's bottling-from-a-keg method to send a couple of these out.

I'm going to brew it again soon, and if batch #2 turns out as well as this one did then I'm just going to leave it alone.

Let me know how yours turns out!

All jokes aside, the commercial version of EF is quite good. I may have to brew this up soon.

We should have a lable contest for this one!!

I just poured my first pint from this beer I brewed up on 12/5/07. This stuff is EFing great. Having never tried the commercial version, I can't say how close it is, but this stuff is great. My only tweaks to recipe were to swap some crystal 120 for the special B as I was out, and I pitched onto and existing yeast cake of S-04. Great Work OhioBrewtus

So, now that some time has passed, how close to you think it is to the real EF? Just curious. I'm adding this recipe to my files as I have yet to brew what I consider to be a decent Porter. This recipe looks like it may fit the bill.

I'd say that it's quite close. This recipe has a bit more going on in the nose and the palate in the way of roasted and chocolate notes than the commercial verson does.

I'll have to report back again in a few weeks when I have this past weekend's brew on tap.

I may have to try this soon.

I threw this in beersmith, everything halved for a 5.5gal batch. Attached is the BSM file, just in case anyone wants to skip a step - ohiobrewtus, I'd be happy to remove it if you want to put up your own, or just want me to take it down, or whatever.
