I have a bunch of spare bits in my fridge I was hoping to utilize. I’d like to brew up a porter for this winter so this is what I came up with:
.75# Black Patent
.75# Crystal 80L
1oz Columbus (pellet) @ 60
1oz Styrian Goldings (leaf) @ 15
1oz Crystal (leaf) @ 0 and let steep for 15
2# Wheat DME
6# Dark LME
(I might change the extracts for grain, I dunno)
Yeast will be either 1335 or 1098
For fun I’ll throw some oak chips in the secondary. I might even soak them in Wild Turkey or Bourbon.
Am I going to smoke myself out w/ all that BP? I ran the recipe through Beersmith and the chemistry comes out good. The style is a should be right. But will it taste good?
