Beer Style: Robust Porter (12B)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
The whole thing turned out pretty good - the beer itself seems to be about the best we've done so far. It has a dark, bitter, funky flavor from the coffee and the black patent malt. Color is very black almost chunky, and has good thick head - kinda like Guiness in color and consistancy.
Steep grains while bringing water to a boil (50 minutes); add extract return to boil add hops and boil for 45 min. Reduce heat and add Espresso - steep for 10 minutes; return to boil and add finishing hops for 5 minutes; sparge, chill, and pitch.
