(Makes 5 gallons) Chocolate and Black Patent malts are the backbone of this style. Our all-grain version of Porter features munich malt for a little maltiness and carapils for better mouthfeel and head retention. The Northern Brewer hops impart a nice, but not overpowering bitterness. Good first dark beer. However, for many people this is their favorite style. Just ask Regan who is a Porter nut. All of our Porter recipes are descendents of his designs which date back to the 1980's. You will not find any Roasted Barley in our Porter recipes as we believe this is the defining difference between Stout and Porter. If you would like to see the difference for yourself try making our B3 Stout (in extract) or our Silk Stout in all grain form and then one of our Porters. It is fun to have them on tap at the same time and show people the difference in dark beers.
