I only have one porter recipe, so I guess I'll just keep brewing that.

I'd burned out on porters until I came up with this recipe.  It's also in Drew's book, if you have that (you should!).

I only do one porter a year. My brewing schedule is pretty limited, so I tend to stick to the recipes I really love.

After a little searching, here's what I'm thinking of brewing. I will probably use Fuggles instead of EKG.


5 gallons:
8.25 lbs pale 2-row (MO???)
1lb 55L crystal (I have substituted half of the 55L for 120L with excellent results)
.63lb brown malt
.63lb chocolate malt
about 25-30 ibu's of an English hop bittering only (I use EKG).
No flavour or aroma hops.

Wyeast 1968

OG: 1.054 (70% efficiency)

MAsh at 154dF for 90 minutes.

FG: 1.013.

Seems reasonable. Fuggle/EKG swap isn't going to make much difference. Definitely MO.
