Dextrinous Porter

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Brewing

    8.00 lb Munton & Fison 2-row pale
    1.50 lb Crystal malt
    0.25 lb Chocolate malt
    0.25 lb Black patent malt
    0.50 lb Flaked barley
    1.00 oz Willamette hops (boil)
    0.50 oz Cascade hops (boil)
    0.50 oz Cascade hops (finish)

Mash grains. Add boiling hops and boil 90 minutes. Dry hop with 1/2 ounce Cascade. My mash temp was too high, as I misjudged the quantity of strike liquor and the mash spent a lot of time in the 160-170 degree range before I brought it down to 154 degrees. Conversion was good (1.048 for 5 gallons), but now after fermentation slowed to 1 bubble every 2 minutes, the gravity is 1.024. I suspect there's nothing I can do to turn this sweet porter into the dry porter I intended so my question is, "Is there some style I can claim to have intended in the first place?" I guess I need some level of plausible brewability. Original Gravity: 1.048 Final Gravity: 1.024 Recipe By : Serving Size:
