Home | Recipes | A
Beer Brewing

Ingredients:

  • 4 1/2 lb Barley (pale malt)
  • 4 oz Wheat malt
  • 8 oz Munich malt
  • 9 oz Crystal/Chocolate mixture
  • 4 oz Black Patent
  • 1/4 c Molasses
  • 1 5/8 oz Cascade Hops (5.8AAU)
  • (Bittering)
  • 1/2 oz Mt. Hood Hops (3.8AAU??)
  • (Bittering)
  • 3/8 oz Cascade (finish)
  • Wyeast English Ale

Directions:

Add all grains, crushed, to 6qts water at 55C. Wait 30 min. Raise temp to 62C (Added 2qts boiling water) Wait 75 min. Raise temp to 75C. Wait 5 min. Sparge with 75C water. Bring to boil, add molasses, Cascade, and Mt. Hood hops. Boil one hour. Add finishing hops. Boil 5 min. Cool down in sink. Add yeast from starter. I recently tasted my all-grain porter against Anchor's and the big thing I notice was Anchor Porter is thick, creamy. Mine is low carbonated, but it does not have that creamy feel. This was my first all-grain brew and my first porter. It has a good malt flavor. Next time I would cut back on the hops some. Original Gravity: 1.054 Final Gravity: 1.010 Primary Ferment: 10 days
