Beer Style: Robust Porter  (12B)
Recipe Type: partial mash
Yield: 5 US gallons

Robust Porter


This is a clone recipe I got from the brew master at the mad river brewery in blue lake, ca. It is a strong and bold flavored porter with a smoky character. This is my favorite beer, but can be hard to find. Brew your own batch and get a six pack of the real thing for a comparison of your expertise!

All of the ingredients are listed in percents and in pounds (for all grain). I would use about 7#s of pale extract along with mashing all of the listed grains for a partial. I recommend a cali. comon yeast from white labs or the listed from wyeast.
