Brown Porter

 Still trying to make a decent beer here, and I think this one is finally it. I got about a pint of fresh yeast from my neighbors, and that seems to have made the difference.


5 gallon batch


10 lb 2-row

8 oz white wheat

4 oz black patent

4 oz chocolate malt


Mashed at 151F. I seem to hit mash temp a little lower than I expect, but no worries. Added a 1/2 tsp of phosphoric acid. Ran off 6.5 gallons to the boil kettle.


2 oz Saaz, 60 minutes


1 pint of safale 04 from my neighbors.



I'm behind on entering batch notes, so this just went on tap today. It tastes just fine, just as a brown porter should taste. Brewed a batch of IPA today, I'm going to reuse the yeast cake.
