Homebrew Porter (Brew #8)

Posted by admin on Saturday 4 October 2008

We finally got those pesky hospital bills paid off so I was able to buy green coffee and brew beer again! It’s been about a month since I’ve had either, so I’m looking forward to when both are ready to drink.

We brewed the porter tonight, which was our 8th brew, using malt rather than corn sugar. This means it will have a more full body when it’s ready, which to me means more delicious.

I used a pre-hopped kit again because I’m still not brave enough to brew from scratch, and don’t have a big enough brew pot for grain brewing.

My coffee should arrive Tuesday and the porter will be ready to move into 72 bottles next weekend. It will be ready to drink about 8 days after that. The porter will be around 5% alcohol when ready.

Also good news: BEER dad has been renewed for another year of beer and parenting.
