BeerEasy.com Lake Superior PorterThe BeerEasy.com recipe series was in need of a dark, roasty beer. I looked to myrecipe database and found my Lake Superior Porter. This recipe produces a beer alot like Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, hence the name. This beer is roasty,bittersweet, and moderately bitter and even has a bit of hop flavor. The chocolateand black patent malt give it roasty flavor and aroma. The crystal malt providessweetness and the unique Special B malt gives a bittersweet caramel like flavor. Let this beer age 2 to 3 weeks in the secondary before bottling, it needs some extra timeto mellow and age, but it is DEFINITELY worth the wait!Volume: 5.5 gallonsOG: 1.059 (Original Gravity)Approximate FG: 1.014 (Final Gravity)Approximate ABV: 6.0%Approximate IBU: 39 IBU (bitterness units)SRM (color): 36 SRMGrains
