    3.33 lb John Bull dark extract
    3.63 lb Light Australian dry malt
    1.00 lb Black patent malt (coarsely
    2.00 oz Cascade hops
    0.50 oz Tettnanger hops
    1.00 oz Tettnanger hops (finish)
    1.00 Pack
    0.75 c Corn sugar (priming)
    Edme ale yeast

Add crushed black patent malt to 1-1/2 gallons cold water. Bring to boil. (This recipe was made by boiling malt for 10 minutes, however, conventional wisdom is to avoid boiling whole grains). Strain out malt. Add extract and dry malt and Cascade and 1/2 ounce Tettnanger hops. Boil 60 minutes. Add finishing hops and boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and steep 1-2 minutes. Sparge into 3-1/2 gallons cold water. Cool and pitch yeast. This recipe was modified from Papazian's "Sparrow Hawk Porter" and won first place at the Santa Clara County Fair.
