Beer Style: Robust Porter  (12B)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 3 US gallons

Robust Porter


For me, experimenting with recipes is one of the most enjoyable aspects of home brewing -- right up there with actually drinking the results. :-) Just make sure you write down what you did -- who knows, you may want to duplicate it someday!

In keeping with the general spirit of this thread, here's the recipe for one of my recent "experimental" batches. I count this one as one of the successes; it came out quite nice. Note that the recipe is for *3* gallons; just multiply everything by 5/3 for a 5 gallon batch


  • 3 lbs Klages malt
  • 3 lbs Munich malt
  • 6 oz crystal malt (75L)
  • 5 oz "Special B" (250L)
  • 5 oz chocolate malt
  • 1 oz black patent malt
  • 1 oz Northern Brewer (7%AA, boil)
  • 1/2 oz Cascades (5%AA, boil)
  • 1/4 oz Cascades (10 minutes)
  • 1/4 oz Cascades (steep)
  • Wyeast #1728 (Scottish)
  • 5/8 cup corn sugar (priming)
