Time to dig out the Gordon Lightfoot album and pour yourself one of these in memory of the 29 men lost on this day in 1975

so anyways....

Made a 5.5g batch of this again the other day.

I'd like to second my recommendation for subbing out the US Pale for Marris Otter on this. Where as it won't get you closer to an EF clone, it will get you closer to a much tastier porter, ( which is saying a lot, as EF is one of my favorite porters.),.

This last batch I FWH'ed with 1/4 oz of homegrown Magnums, subbed the Pale malt for MO, added 10oz's of Aromatic Malt, ( adjusted the IBU's to compensate), did a 120min mash, and used dry S-04. Primary @ 64f. Other than that, everything was as per the OG recipe.

This promises to be quite the beverage.

I'm brewing my fourth(? at least, I'm starting to lose count) batch of your recipe and the only issue I have with this beer is that it keeps me from making other porters and stouts!!!! Thanks for this awesome recipe. It's a crowd favorite and, even though the last batch of it was the newest keg in my fridge, it was the first one emptied.

BTW, once I forgot to buy Special B so had to try to correct for it. It still made a good porter but not nearly as smooth and complex.

I'm on brew #2. I've got this on Nitrogen. It's a great beer. Definitely smooth as mentioned above. I think I may be drinking it a bit cold, but still good. I mixed this with my Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA for an interesting dark IPA. My EF came out strong at OSH 1.070 and Dogfish was weak at 1.072, so this mixed pretty evenly - not like a black and tan.

We tried this brewing this for the first time today.

We ended up a little higher on the specific gravity. It was our first time using new all grain equipment so we are still trying to figure out our stuff. We are looking forward to it.

Thanks for the recipe.

Brewed this a little while ago. Changed only a few things: Used carafa I had on hand instead of black patent, mashed at 158, ended up a bit high @1.019, but I intended for a higher fg, and pitched US-05.

Its still a little early, but it came out fantastic. I guess it can only get better as it ages too. No idea how close it is to being a clone, i'll have to get EF and see.

Anyway, thanks for the great recipe.
