Pipeline Porter Clone

I have brewed several Mocha Porters in the past, but nothing as smooth as Kona's Pipeline Porter. Does anybody have a recipe? (Although, after reading about Denny's Vanilla Bourbon Imperial Porter I may change my plans.)



Anyone who says there's no such thing as bad beer never tasted my very first batch. Successive batches have greatly improved, as have the victims of that first attempt.

If you go to their website they will give you some valueable info on the beers stats. Get that and let me know if you are doing All Grain, Extract, Minimash and Ill see what I can do. I successfully cloned their Firerock Pale Ale and Longboard Lager already.

From the Kona Brewing website:

Bitterness - 30 IBU
ABV - 5.4%
OG 13.5 Plato

Malts - Pale, Carapils, Victory, Caramel 80, Extra Special, Chocolate Malt, Dark Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley

Hops: Warrior, Millenium(sic), Horizon, Perle

And some Kona coffee.

Looks like a kitchen sink brew to me.

Here's a stab in the dark. I've never had this beer, so I have no idea about the hop flavor.

not to knock the pipeline porter, but IMHO just skip it and brew the BVIP.
Easily one of the best porters I've ever had.

What I's REALLY like to see is a recipe for a Mikheller Black Hole clone. That beer is amazing.

Somebody wants to brew a coffee porter and you suggest a bourbon vanilla imperial porter instead? They are so ridiculously far from each other that it is a bit of a silly suggestion.

yes, they are rather different, but the OP mentioned that he was considering brewing the BVIP instead. Having brewed the BVIP and tried the Pipeline Porter, I think that he should go with BVIP. Just my 2 cents.

I find that to a reasonable response and not silly in the least.
