Batch 116, Another Porter

Just another porter. I wanted to do the recipe from batch 99, but I didn't have any British brown malt. So this is a new recipe made up of what I had on hand.

10 gallon batch

OG: 1.045 est, 1.058 actual
FG: 1.011 est
ABV 4.3%
IBU 29
SRM 36

10 lbs 2 row
7 lbs munich
2 lbs roasted barley
10 oz chocolate
6 oz black patent

Mash at 150F, actual 148F.

4 oz Experimental Fuggles 4.0AA, 60 minutes

Wyeast 1272, 2 quart starter

Ferment at 63F.

Feb 12, 2012, racked to kegs, FG 1.010.

Split one of the kegs into thirds, added jalepenos to one, serranos to the second, and a habenero to the third. Let them sit for a week, then bottled.
