Nebraska Home Brew Recipe



So, in case anyone decides to read a beer related FanPost..  I designed a beer recipe for a Brown Porter, and if any of it is left in November, it shall be consumed at the Nebraska tailgate.  It has hints of coffee, toffee, chocolate, and is a very nice beer for the season..  Look up the BJCP guidelines for Brown Porters and this one hits the mark.

This is one of three brews I've used to advance in a year long brewing competition.  It is by far one of my favorite home brews to date.  Very complex aroma and a full backbone of flavor to stand up to it.  And while it is dark, it is a porter, so not too thick.  It also finished a little dry compared to what I expected, so it is very very drinkable for more than one pint.

Brew it now, and you'll be ready in time for the last home game of the year!!

The original brew was 2.5 gallons, my standard brew to increase variety in my fridge..  however, here it is converted to a 5 gallon extract with specialty grain:

 

6.6 lbs Munton's Pale Liquid Malt Extract

1 lb coffee kiln malt (80L) could substitute Crystal 80L but will lack a little coffee note..

1lb Crystal 40L

10 oz Chocolate Malt 350L

 

1.5 oz UK Fuggles pellets (4%AA) 60min

.5oz UK Fuggles pellets (4%AA) 10min

 

WLP005 British Ale Yeast (I use 2 liquid tubes for 5 gallons, perfect pitch rate)

 

Enjoy!
