I have five flavors bottled right now. I had one last night and it was so good I had another tonight. People stop by occasionally to share a beer. Sometimes I just crack one. Even at three days in the bottle I'm really enjoying this stuff. It's my favorite of what I have right now.

I've been buying a lot of Summit "Great Northern Porter" at the store, so this almost as good as that. I'm really happy for a first try at the style.

just kegged my version of EF today. I force carbed it and am letting it sit for a couple of days at 25 PSI. I'm hoping it's ready for this upcoming Sunday which will be 3 weeks from brew date. I know, it needs more time for the best possible flavor but i'm impatient. i actually had a glass now and the flavor is good. forgot what EF specifically tastes like since it's been awhile since I had one but my version is fine. I just wish I had more patience....

Looking at this for my next 10 gallon batch - just one question: is Gordon Lightfoot's ballad on repeat mandatory during the brew? I sure hope so...

Not mandatory, but highly recommended to get the full effect. ;-)

Check out my Eve of Destruction Pumpkin Porter too BTW.

Brewed up a 2.5g batch of this a couple months back, bottle conditioned it in 750ml's.

The only thing I changed was to use Marris Otter as the base malt, and boy was I pleased with the decision to do so.

Just tonight I did a side by side with some friends of the real McCoy vs my batch with the MO.

I don't want to sound like a braggart, but mine was notably better. I really am starting to be convinced that higher quality base malts can contribute a huge difference in the end result.


Thanks for a great recipe.

Hey Ohiobrewtus -

Any idea what IBU calculation formula you had beersmith set to for the recipe as originally posted?

I am planning on brewing this on Sunday. Only changes will be Marris Otter base malt and Perle hops throughout, splitting a batch with Notty / S04.

Thanks!

Hey I am brewing this beer on Sunday or Tuesday not sure yet. How important is the 2 qt yeast starter. I am a beginner brewer who does all grain. I see many recipes call for it. I was wondering if you could shed some light on the topic thanks

I would only use a liquid yeast for a wheat beer or Belgian as I don't like messing with them.

The 2 qts are for a 11 gallon batch. If you are brewing half the recipe and want the liquid yeast, then use 1 qt.

Last time I made this I used S-05 dry yeast and it came out delicious.
