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

Brown Porter


Here's a recipe for a brew I've particularly liked. It's somewhat in the style of a Brown Porter, although really a little too hoppy for that style. The recipe is toned down from the original hopping rate, but I believe even a hop-head will enjoy this brew. Tasty stuff, that!


  • 6 pounds, 2-row pale malt
  • 3 pounds, Munich Malt
  • 1 pound, black patent malt
  • 4 ounces, Crystal Malt (80L)
  • 12 AAU, (~1.0 oz @11.6) Centennial hops (bittering) (Oops!)
  • 9.5 AAU, (~0.75 oz @12.6) Chinook hops (bittering) (Oops!)
  • 1/2 ounce, Cascades (steep)
  • 1 ounce, Kent Goldings (dry hop at rack to secondary)
  • Wyeast 1084 (Irish Ale)
  • 1--1/2 quart, gyle (or 1/2 cup corn sugar) (priming)
