Awesome, thanks!

Just brewed this, my second AG batch. 87% efficiency on both batches.
What should I adjust?

nothing but your brew software Let it know how high of an efficiency you have and you wont have to use as much grain as most.

Are you sparging?

Must just be doing a very good job

Did you end up with 5.5 gallons of wort?

I ended a little high after an hour, maybe 5.7. Hit preboil volume right on. Didn't want it any stronger, so I stopped at an hour.

It's fermenting like mad right now. Wife thought there was a wild animal in our basement, it's that loud.

I just bottled this and it is one tasty beer. Big and full bodied with a lot of chocolate and coffee flavor. Thanks for the recipe

Holy crap edwort, I brewed this yesterday and now I can't keep the lid on. I have 55 lbs of weight on this monster and it's still lifting!
Can't wait to drink this. Tasted unbelievably good going into the fermenter.
Thanks a million for this recipe!!!

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.

Is there something I could use other then Nottingham? I used this before and it seemed to have alot of yeast suspension. Or could I cold crash it and have it fall out? Any help would be great really want to do this brew Sunday!
