Robust Porter


Here's one of my favorite recipes. It's a simple one, but I'm a simple guy.


  • 3 1/3 lb light liquid extract
  • 1 lb light dry extract
  • 8 oz chocolate malt
  • 4 oz black patent malt
  • 1/2 cp molasses
  • 1 oz bittering hops (about 5-6%)
  • 1 oz Willamette
  • 1 pk ale yeast

Specialty malts were heated just short of boiling in 1 gal water, then removed. Malt extracts and bittering hops were added, and boiled for 55 minutes. Willamette hops were added right at the end of the boil, and this was poured into three gallons of cold water in the primary. I've made this beer both with and without a yeast starter, depending on how ambitious I felt.
