Just brewed this for a second time. The first one cashed fast. Damned friends making excuses to stop by to drink it
Definitely making this a regular. So nice to brew.
Heat water to 160, pour in cooler with grains, do something for an hour.
Start heating sparge water, drain wort, sparge, bring to boil and add hops.
Do something for an hour.
Flame out, whirlpool.
Do something for twenty minutes.
No-chill siphon into fermenter, let chill overnight.
Pitch yeast in the morning.
Easy brew, not a lot of hand-holding or crazy hop schedules or special yeasts or anything. Robust, simple brew. It's a "Robust Robust Porter" because the recipe is so damned simple and the taste so prominent that it's hard to mess up or do something to really screw it up.
