The malto dextrin adds a little chewiness to it.

Would Hallertau or Perle work as a good sub for the Northern Brewer? My LBS is out of Northern. I have the Hallertau and Perle on hand. If not those...what would make the best sub for Northern in a porter? Ed I am enjoyig a nice bottle of your Haus Pale as I type.........good stuff.

Hallertau should work fine. I'm glad you enjoy the Haus Ale.

I love the PBR koozie!

Sure, but it will be a different beer though. It will have less body and more coffee flavor to it.

How does this beer compare to a Sierra Nevada porter? I had a SN porter last night and I think it's my new favorite porter. I prefer the chocolate flavor over the coffee flavor. With only 1 oz of roasted barely and 1lb of chocolate, I have a feeling it might be close.

Good question. I'll have to buy one and let you know.

What's your thoughts on adding some vanilla bean to this? I'm looking for a heavy porter recipe but would like to make a vanilla porter in its place.

Give it a try.

After primary, slit open 2 vanilla beans. Scrape the insides, chop the pods into quarters, add to secondary fermenter, rack beer onto vanilla. Taste periodically for the correct balance.

Alternatively, you might add pure (real) vanilla extract to the bottling bucket as well.
