Beer Style: Porter 
Recipe Type: partial mash
Yield: 5 gallons

Description:

Aroma and flavor received excellent feedback. The main critique was that appearance was not very "porterish". The conditioned beer had a rich, deep mahagony color. Far from a porter. Otherwise, this was an exceptionally good beer that aged well.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs malted Quinoa (heavily roasted and cracked) steeped @ 160 F for 60 min prior to boil
  • 6 lbs Briess Sorghum Extract (prior to boil)
  • 8 oz Molasses (robust) (prior to boil)
  • 8 oz Belgian Candi Sugar (Dark) (prior to boil)
  • 1.5 oz Warrior (60 min)
  • 1.5 oz UK Kent Golding (15 min)
  • 0.15 oz licorice stick (15 min)
  • 1 tsp Irish Moss (15 min)
  • 1 tsp Di-ammonium phosphate (15 min)
  • 1 tsp Gypsum (15 min)
