Have read through many of the porter recipes in the database and have searched the internet. Now I need experienced input please. I am going for something similar to a Sierra Nevada Porter. What do yall think? I want it to be nice and balanced. Drier and toastier would be better than sweeter, but some where in the middle would be nice.

I got a SN brochure in with the glasses I got from them for xmas. In that it has this to say about the porter. No amounts, but the info may be helpful if you want a true clone

abv 5.6%
og 15.0 plato
fg 4.0 plato
ibu - 36
color - dark brown
finishing hops - yakima golding and willamette
bittering hops - magnum
malts - 2 row, munich, chocolate, caramel, carafa and black
yeast - ale (nothing more specific on the yeast).

I have yet to start recipe development, so I'll leave comments on your recipe to those with experience in it. I just thought this info may help.
