Black Butte Porter® Clone - Dark Hill Porter (Extract)

Black Butte Porter® Clone - Dark Hill Porter (Extract)

Item currently out of stock

One of our favorite west coast porters is now available in "hombrew" form!  Our Black Butte Porter clone, commercially brewed by Deschutes Brewery in Oregon, is one of the most well rounded porters out there.  Being bittered with Bravo hops helps to initially balance the malty backbone, but that bitterness fades quickly, providing a smooth transition into the complex flavors of four different steeping grains.  This combination of Wheat, Carapils, Crystal 120L, and Chocolate malts create a rounded mouthfeel and chocolate flavor.  

If you like dark beers, you're going to love our Dark Hill Porter.  If you don't like dark beers, this just might be the one to change your mind!

Awesome kit. Very close to Black Butte Porter. Add a little coffee and it's perfect

What yeast did you use for this Porter and how much?
Phillip Williams on Feb 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: US-05 is my go to yeast in most brews that do require a special strain. 05 always produces well and clean. I also always rehydrate and make a starter the day before with the stir plate

Incredible Espresso Carmel cherry tones
This kit makes for a large bold stout and by adding extra malt the alcohol by volume should be in the mid to upper teens. Aging 2-6 months in a bourbon barrel can only be a better :-)

Best Porter
This beer reminds me of Deschutes Black Butte Porter. At the last min of the boil add fresh ground Espresso beans in a grain bag.
