Strong, Mostly Grain Porter

I am a big fan of Porter.  My previous batch of The President's Porter came out well.  I decided that I would make a regular Porter.  I am interested in moving into all-grain brewing, but I also had some malt extract from an old brewing kit that I wanted to use.  So I decided to make a mostly all-grain porter with the exception that  I would use up the remainder of the extract I had.  I adjusted the amount of grains I used using the an extract to grain conversion.

  • 19.4 oz blonde malt extract from an old brewing kit (I thought I'd use it up.)
  • 7 lbs cracked American 2-row (Klages) malt
  • 1 lbs cracked Munich malt
  • 1 lbs cracked crystal malt 120
  • 1/2 lbs cracked black patent malt
  • 1/2 lbs cracked English chocolate malt
  • 1/2 lbs cracked, roasted barley
  • 1 oz German northern brewer hops
  • 1 oz German Tettnang hops 
  • 3/4 cup dextrose
  • 0.388 oz. Nottingham Dry Yeast
  • 2.5 tsp diammonium phosphate
  • 1 tsp Crosby & Baker yeast energizer
  • 2 tsp gypsum
  • 5-6 gallons Reverse Osmosis purified water
  • 27 lbs ice
