Dispensible Crewman Hoppy Porter by Q
« on: October 03, 2011, 08:07:38 AM »
I was asked about the recipe for my version of RB's Hoppy Porter, I guess it has "evolved" a fair ways from the original, so here's what we were sampling on Saturday.

5 lbs 8.0 oz   Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)                  
4 lbs 8.0 oz   Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM)
2 lbs             Wheat Malt, Pale (Weyermann) (2.0 SRM)        
1 lbs             Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM)      
1 lbs             Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM)                        
1 lbs             Chocolate Malt (450.0 SRM)                  
4.0 oz           Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM)

2.00 oz          Nugget Leaf [15.10 %] - Boil 60.0 min    
1.00 oz          Fuggles [4.50 %] - Boil 15.0 min            
2.00 oz          Willamette Leaf [5.10 %] - Dry Hop 21 days  

1.0 pkg          Nottingham (Danstar #-) [23.66 ml]

I see you used Nottingham yeast. That was in my brown ale. An underrated yeast, I think. I might try that for my stout next time.

Yes, a really good yeast. Fermented quick and clean.  Many folks have said that of the 3 versions of this recipe I've brought many times that this one is "the best".  Part of that was the switch to Notty, I think.  Besides, I just love saying that I'm using naughty yeast.
Wonder if the grain folks can supply Naughty?

The grain folks mostly do Fermentis - but I can ask...

Yes, I really liked this. I can see I'm really going to have to build my grain stalk a lot if I'm going to keep up with all these great recipes! :-)

Interested in making this.  When would you start dry hoping?  As soon as you put it into the secondary?

I don't do a secondary, all my dry hopping is in the keg.

Senior, when you say all your dry hopping is in the keg, do you mean you put your dry hops in the keg and then pressure transfer from your brewhemoths into the keg?

If so, have you tried dry hopping in the brewhemoth yet?

Drinking this now and will make it again. May add a little more hops to the keg next time to get a bit more aroma. May open up a bit once it ages a little.
