I have one tried adn true porter recipe...and its far from 'simple'. I think it uses 5 specialty grains plus the base malt, and two types of hops.

oh heck, I'll share the original extract recipe anyways!
click on this link to get to the recipe. Link will expire at the stroke of Midnight, May 6th, 2008.

Primary: English Mild
On tap: Pale Ale, Lancelot's Wheat, English Brown Ale, Steam Beer, HoovNuts IPA
Bottled: MOAM, Braggot, Raspberry Melomel, Merlot, Apfelwein, Pyment, Sweet mead, Cabernet

my recent porter, which im bottling this week and tasted amazing when i moved it to the secondary...

3/4lb crystal 60L
.5 chocolate
.5 victory
.5 black patent
1 oz Centennial at 60 min
.5 oz Willamette @ 15
.5 oz Willamette @ 5
American Ale yeast (though i think using a london ale yeast or wyeast 1028 is what ill use next time, since this is based off various edmund fitzgerald clone recipes)

i can post the stats when I get home.

Check out JP's website. http://www.howtobrew.com/section4/chapter19-3.html

Depends what you mean by simple. Steeping grains is quite easy and well worth the effort.

He has All extract, Extract Steeped grains, & AG.

See: Port O' Palmer - Porter

Steep the following in 4 gallons of 154 F water for 1 hour:

1 lbs Simpson Golden Promise
1 lbs 45 L British Crystal
2/3 lbs Black malt

Separate water from grain, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, add 2 cans Mountmellick amber malt, bring to a boil and add 35 IBU Northdown hops. Reduce to 3.5 gallons, cool and add to 2.0 gallons of preboiled distilled water already in primary. Add Sfale-04 package and ferment for 7 days. Secondary fermentaion is optional here. Some might like to add a strong fennel "tea" with blackstrap molasses at bottling for that robust flavor.
