    Smoke On The Water Porter

    Post  PureGuiness on Wed May 09, 2012 10:40 am

    Recently I had a request from someone to do a porter because they like a good porter and have problems finding any in their area. I have a couple of porter recipes already but have been interested in trying a smoked porter out.

    So borrowing from recipes from Padley123 and Nunfa1 I decided to have a go at a bit of a hybrid.

    Name: Smoke On The Water


    Type: All Grain
    Style: Robust Porter

    Batch size: 19.00 ltrs
    Boil size: 26.00 ltrs
    Boil Time: 90 min
    Efficiency: 75%

    Est. OG: 1.051 SG
    Est. FG: 1.013 SG
    Est. ABV: 5.0 %
    Est. Colour: 54.2 EBC
    Est. Bitterness: 34.5.00 IBU

    Fermentables
    Amount Type Colour
    3000.00 gm Pale Malt, Maris Otter 5.9 EBC
    500.00 gm Rauchmalt (Smoked Malt) 3.9 EBC
    100.00 gm Wheat, Torrified 3.9 EBC
    300.00 gm Chocolate Malt 1000.8 EBC
    200.00 gm Flaked Barley 3.9 EBC
    20.00 gm Black Malt 1300.8 EBC
    Hops
    Amount Hop Type Alpha Acid % Time Use
    12.00 gm Bramling Cross 7.0%AA 90 min Boil
    10.00 gm Boadicea 7.0%AA 90 min Boil
    25.00 gm Bramling Cross 7.0%AA 15 min Boil
    20.00 gm Boadicea 7.0%AA 15 min Boil

    Yeast
    Burton Ale Yeast (WLP023)

    Misc

    I was going for something here with plenty of flavour and some body to it so the mash is set fairly high at 68.9oC.

    My efficiency seemed to be up today, I hit the 19l brew length but the OG was 1.056 instead of the expected 1.051.... no biggie Smile

    I also forgot the black malt but it was mainly for colour and I'm happy with how it turned out without it.

    So here's the day in pictures:
