Brewed this up this weekend as a half batch due to some equipment restraints. Scaled for a low efficiency as it was my first run at BIAB but hit about 73%. A bit high on the og (1. 07) due to the bigger grain bill from scaling but I didn't have any treated water to top off with to bring it down. It tastes awesome going in to the fermenter and is bubbling like crazy.

I'm going to be bottling this. Anyone see advantages in racking this to a secondary? I was planning on riding it out in the primary the whole time.

I'll also be brewing this as my first true foray into BIAB. Any thoughts on what you did that helped push your efficiency up over 70% for this brew?

I'm limited to a 5 and 4 gal pot. So I started with a volume of around 4.39 gallons. I mashed with 1.25 qt/lb for 60 min and then did a dunk sparge in the remainder of the water that I heated in the 4 gallon pot to about 165f. Then I let it sit in the sparge for 10 min more and strained again with a bit of bag squeezing. From there I combined the wort from the 2 pots into the 5 gal and started the boil.
That's from memory, but feel free to pm me if you want more details and I can look up my numbers.

I just bottled and tasted a small beer I made with this and some leftover hops. It was about a gallon of 1.03 continuously hopped with glacier. I used a lot of hops for the small amount of beer, but it's had a few months to mellow since I forgot about it. I thought it tasted alright--mostly hops, but some malt character coming through. What sort of beer would this be?

Bottled this this afternoon, it is awesome even though it's flat! I can't wait to taste it after it carbs up. Great recipe, I'm thinking that it will make a great base for Vanilla Porter. I will be brewing this one again.

This was my first Porter and I have to say Ed, this is a great beer. Blow tube is definitely a good idea. My most violent fermentation yet.

Today's report: still needs a little more conditioning time, but this beer is GREAT! I was a little hesitant to brew this as I usually don't go for a Porter, but this is worth it, I will be brewing this again... soon. I'm pretty sure this batch won't last long.

I left this in the carboy for ~ 3 weeks and then kegged it. A couple weeks in the keg and tastes fantastic. I will definitely be making this again.

I was worried because i accidentally used too much chocolate malt - the brew tasted overly harsh. But a couple weeks of sitting cleared it up. Thanks for the tasty recipe!

Same here. Really look to make this again in the coming weeks.
