Beer Style: Brown Porter (12A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

Brown Porter


This recipes is based on Papazian's "Silver Dollar Porter." I suspect the difference in quality between this batch and an extract batch is going to be the difference between fresh-brewed coffee and instant. The wort had a much better hot and cold break than I've ever experienced using extracts, and it tasted better too.
