Porter was reputedly first brewed in London in 1722, perhaps in response to the then-popular pub practice of mixing the beers of two or three different casks in one glass. A London brewer developed a beer said to be like the blended pints, and porter was born. Today, porter is loosely thought of as a more mild form of stout, with a lower alcohol level and less intense flavor. Our Porter features a very smooth dark malt base balanced with selected English hops. Alcohol: 3.8%, IBU's 31.
Includes 6 lbs. of our blended malt extract, English hops, 125 ml of liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.039. Ease of Brewing: Beginner
