Robust Porter


Just started this one yesterday. Looks like it is going to be a tasty one.

A couple notes: This is for 5 gallons of beer. And it may look confusing but there is a 30 minute boil AND a 60 minute boil, after you discard of the muslin bags and grains and bring the rest of the ingredients to a boil that is when the 60 minute boil starts.


  • 4 Pounds Dark Malt Extract Syrup
  • 4.5 Pounds Maple Syrup (This part can be expensive, so research prices.)
  • 8 OZ Maltodextrine
  • 8 OZ Chocolate Malt (Crushed)
  • 8 OZ 60L Crystal Malt (Crushed)
  • 8 OZ 90L Crystal Malt (Crushed)
  • 1 OZ Target Hops (Bittering, 60 minutes, 8.0 AAU's)
  • 1 Tsp Irish Moss (If you can't get it you don't really need it. More for Clarity)
  • 1 Wyeast (#1338, 1187, 1968, or 1 safale S-04 Ale Yeast)
  • 2 Muslin Bags
  • 5 Oz Priming Sugar
  • A thermometer to check the temperature of the water
