 Ingredients List

  • 4 1/2 lb Barley (pale malt)
  • 4 oz Wheat malt
  • 8 oz Munich malt
  • 9 oz Crystal/Chocolate mixture
  • 4 oz Black Patent
  • 1/4 c Molasses
  • 1 5/8 oz Cascade Hops (5.8AAU)
  • (Bittering)
  • 1/2 oz Mt. Hood Hops (3.8AAU??)
  • (Bittering)
  • 3/8 oz Cascade (finish)
  • Wyeast English Ale


Add all grains, crushed, to 6qts water at 55C. Wait 30 min. Raise temp to
62C (Added 2qts boiling water) Wait 75 min. Raise temp to 75C. Wait 5 min.
Sparge with 75C water. Bring to boil, add molasses, Cascade, and Mt. Hood
hops. Boil one hour. Add finishing hops. Boil 5 min. Cool down in sink.
Add yeast from starter. I recently tasted my all-grain porter against
Anchor's and the big thing I notice was Anchor Porter is thick, creamy.
Mine is low carbonated, but it does not have that creamy feel. This was my
first all-grain brew and my first porter. It has a good malt flavor. Next
time I would cut back on the hops some. Original Gravity: 1.054 Final
Gravity: 1.010 Primary Ferment: 10 days
