Brew porter in the fall this year.

Note to MrNate:

It's fall.

In the Northern Hemisphere anyway.

Which, incidentally, is where Bridgewater NJ is.

So brew porter.

I didn't recognize you without your sandals.

I should stop PWI.

Brew porter, definitely...always a good thing...but also brew a strong, hefty Porter to enjoy next fall / winter. 
Been doing that for a number of years here and it has become a tradition. 

If I run out of my Christmas 'solera' brew at gift giving time, my year old Porter is frequently a ready and worthy substitute.

I'm actually looking to make a porter really soon. Anyone got a Fuller's London Porter clone?
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!

I'm gonna get a batch underway soon.  My sister works for the only US vanilla farm (http://www.hawaiianvanilla.com/) and just sent me some beans.  They've gotta be the juiciest, most fragrant vanilla I've ever run across.

Good Mexican vanilla works just as well as beans and it's a lot cheaper.
