|A pint of the honey porter.|
Last time I made it, I had 2 oz. of US Fuggle leaf hops from another friend that I used in the brew. I have another pack of those hops but they are in the freezer out at Hawksbill Cabin, so I used a combination of 1 ounce of leaf hops (US Fuggle, bought from Northern Brewer) and the Hallertau pellets that comes in the kit.
Here's the little write-up about the honey porter that is included in the kit from Northern Brewer:
|I've got quite the store room going - batches of the|
honey porter, vagabond ale, and cranberry dubbel are all
bottle conditioning just now!
The first batch of this porter I made got good marks from everybody who had a sample - the balance of the honey and hops was what they frequently mentioned. Although the new batch will have a little variation from that, hopefully the balance is still there.
I really do have to keep notes on the batches going forward, so as these recipes evolve I will be able to repeat what worked and what didn't. In any case, we'll know how it came out in about three weeks, after it has had adequate time in the bottle to condition!
