I'm finally going to do this porter recipe by jayse. I ve got all the ingredients. I.m doing this one with the choc malt and DME.
I really like the JS one so I will probably do a few different recipes over winter to try and clone it. Now if that starter would only hurry up i might get stuck into it tomorrow.
Just reviving an old thread. I made up Jayses recipe today, smells bloody beaut going into the fermenter - when i took an OG (1.056) it smelt so good i almost drank it.
I put it down with an WPL004 Irish Ale yeast.
Just wondering what schedule for primary / secondary / cc that other have used, and what it has turned out like.
I made this in late March. I was a bit all over the place after putting this in primary but according to my notes i had this 2 weeks in primary, 1 in secondary and at least 3 weeks in CC. It may have been 4 weeks in CC. I CC'd more because I had no choice. I couldnt concetrate on brewing as i had all other stuff going on so i just chucked it in the fridge after 1 week in secondary so I wouldn't lose the brew .
I am very happy with the end result as this was the first time I used any grain in a brew. Temp was around 22 24c. I have about 10 Grolsh bottles left that I am lovingly nuturing but they wont last too long.
I used the choc malt only and DME instead of liquid.
I talk about the same recipe in this thread. http://www.aussiehomebrewer.com/forum/inde...s+squire+porter
