Just got the recipes and am reviewing now. First question is on the Honey Porter: 10 HBU bittering hops OK there are lots of hops that can be used for bittering, wonder what they specifically used? I am going to play with the recipes and do a all-grain conversion to see what I can come up with.
In my experience, for a beer like this it hardly matters at all what hop variety you use for bittering, especially at this level (10HBU, which sounds about right for this brew).
I haven't brewed from someone else's recipe (or from extract for that matter) in a very
long time, but I may give the Honey Porter a spin...it actually sounds pretty tasty.
