Anyone else have a comment on this recipe? It seems to be difficult to find a good one for AG porter...

I don't want to hijack--but I do have a question for Walker.....what IS the holy grail? Meaning, exactly what are you shooting for? What would you consider the benchmark or the target? Balanced? Sweet?

Cheyco....I'm no porter expert but that recipe looks nice. You didn't over do it on the black patent and it looks like a pound of crystal will be pretty good. The Vienna should help make it nice and malty.

Thanks for the go-ahead Dude, and actually that's a great hijack. Fill us in Sensei.

Here's my break out for 10 gallons of Porter

Malt Percentage
Black malt 3.00%
Chocolate malt 5.00%
Crystal malt 10.00%
Munich malt 5.00%
Malted Wheat 9.00%
Briess 2 row Pale malt 68.00%

and the hop profile for 40 IBU's
Hops IBU's ounces Alpha Acids Addition Phase
Perle 20 1.50 6.3 Kettle addition
NB 20 2.50 7.1 Middle addtion
Centennial 1.00 Late addition
Centennial 1.00 End of Boil

Yeast hand delivered from Mcneill's Brewey

Target Gravity 1.054
90 minute Boil

I wouldn't recommend more then 5% each of the chocolate or black, as you will risk imparting some burnt flavor which IMHO is undesirable.

How many IBU's are you shooting for?
For your hop profile I'd like to suggest the Fuggles for the kettle addition, and and using the EKG for the middle. IMHO I think Fuggles better suited as a kettle addition hop.

Do you mean total dark grains should not exceed 5%? Right now I'm at 9% I don't mind a little burnt flavor.

I was shooting for mid 30's, I don't want it to be overly bitter. Maybe I'll split all the additions 50/50 EKG/Fuggles. Sounds crazy I know, waddaya think?

no more then 5% of the total grist = chocolate
no more then 5%of the total grist= black

You should be fine at 9%. A pro brewer friend once told me "You will only use too much black or chocolate malt once."

I have never used EKG as a kettle hop despite it being the classic high quailty english hop that it is. I'm sure that the EKG and fuggles used in tandem will work just fine. Let me know how it turns out if you do use them 50/50.

Well this bad boy is in the books. I split all the hop additions and everything whent really well. Sasquatch is very nearly converted to AG, we'll see, he scored very high in the 'drank too much to be much help' section.

I was about a point low on my OG.

I can't wait to hear how this shakes out because I'm curious. My taste will probably run to the sweet instead of the bitter, but maybe not. I'm curious as to how it comes out. It looks really good. I also really like the looks of Walkers' HG Porter which I think tested well if I remember correctly...

Maybe I'm just turning into a Porter Junkie.....

LOL P.O.C. (Porter Obsessive Compulsive)

POC! POC!
