Going with the Pilsner due to being out of Pale Malt & haven't played with the water chemistry yet (any water profile suggestions would be good also).

Any tips would be great.

Looks good. Might be a little bit dark / roasty for a porter, but thats just a guess without crunching the numbers. I'm sure it'll be tasty

are you aiming for an actual robust porter, or just want something dark & tasty?

IMO drop back the black malt til you hit around 50-60 EBC. 83 is going to look quite black.

Thanks for the reply Guy's

I'm not too concerned about hitting the style so colour isn't an issue, am just looking for a tasty brew. I love a roasty beer but if the 100g of black malt will be overkill I will roll it back a bit.

Might back it off to 50g??

Cheers Jefin
