AG#41 – London Porterish

Posted on: November 6, 2010

London Porterish – This is a bit of a user-upper / Christmas gift / Christmas beer / a beer I only recently tasted at a beer fest and thought was amazing (Fullers London Porter). So this recipe is based around the one in the Graham Wheeler book, though a touch of Wheat malt added for head and the mix of Crystal malts is using up odd ends of malt. Hops are Sovereign which I have never used before.

Brown Malt –Β  625g – 11%
Crystal Malt – 340g – 6%
Wheat Malt – 285g – 5%

Crystal Rye Malt – 170g – 3%
Crystal Malt, Dark – 57g – 1%

Sovereign @ 60 mins – 56g
Sovereign @ 10 mins – 19g

My Mash was on at 8.05am
The Boil started at 10.30am
I collected 30litres @ 13.5 Brix
Cooling from boiling took 10mins & 44Litres of water to 33c, then 3mins more to 21c. The 44L was collected in the HLT @ 42c
Original Gravity was 1056 with hydrometer, 14.9 Brix with refractometer (1058, Bang on to recipe) πŸ™‚
Started Run-off to FV at 12:00, taking it slowly probably took the best part of an hour.
The Wort & Hops were smelling lovely πŸ™‚

*Bottled 17th Nov ’10 with 65g of Soft Brown Sugar Came down to FG 1020 ish, needs some age for the dark malts to meld into something lush πŸ™‚
