I brewed this Honey Porter with the DME kit, threw another .75lbs of dme in the recipe and fermented @ 64*f with WL#001. I actually mashed the 2.25lbs of grain at 154* for 1hr. Took a sample on Wednesday evening, and by far thos is the best beer Ive brewed to date! Even without age the raw beer is very drinkable! I find this porter to be VERY similar to Sierra Nevada Porter. It finished at 1.014, and I would recommend using the WL#001 so the flavors of the chocolate and roasted malts come out well. If your looking for a good dark beer kit on a budget, this is the kit to buy! Thanks Austin HB!
A fine recipe with neverending compliments from drinkers. Porters are one of my favorite styles and this Honey Porter is great.
A favorite of mine! I've brewed it several times with great success. Not too hard to get an excellent product out of this recipe. Smooth and full-bodied!
