Yet another Porter

Post by RogerP »

Grist casually taken from the Durden Park book, but more of a feeling of a Victorian porter than any specific recipe.

Hops were whatever fell out first.

Malt
Pale Malt 49.7%
Brown Malt 31.1%
Amber Malt 18.6%
Black Malt 0.6%

Hops
Progress 40%
Marynka 40%
Northdown 20%

Bitterness: 150 EBU
Colour: 200 EBC

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

Shit the bed, that is a lot of brown malt. Which durden recipe # was that from?

I only glanced at the book whilst slugging a kernel black IPA ( which, incidentally, really wasn't black. Not more than mid-brown) but several of the recipes had very high proportions of brown malt. I'll check the proportions when I get home to sparge .

From the 3rd edition, some example grists:

109: 1.5 lb pale, 1 lb amber, 1lb brown
111: 1.75 lb pale, 1.75 lb brown
122: 1.25 lb pale, 1.25 lb amber, 1.25lb brown

So, whilst the %age brown is high, it's not crazy :@

Will be interesting to see what efficiency you get because 109 and 122 both state that you need a brewing enzyme to get mash properly. I've always wondered how true this would be with modern malts. Keep me posted!

Pre-boil looks spot on for 75% mash efficiency. 3 hour mash, I intended 2, but went shopping :)

72% efficiency.
OG 1.082, predicted FG 1.019 = 8.3%ABV
3 Hour mash
60 minute boil, all hops @ 60 mins.

I'll ferment @20C with Paul's "Proper Job" yeast.

New boiler worked very well, great hop filter :)

Easy brew, only made 21 litres.
