Black Earth Porter is on the brew sheet for today.
This brew will have more than 3 1/2 lbs of mixed steeping grains, 1 lb of liquid extract and 1 lb of dry extract. Estimated O.G. = 1.061.
Sparging the grains with water at 170 F. Get all of that grain-rich liquid into the wort!
Then add 1 lb. dry malt extract.
In goes 1/2 oz. Chinook hops…
Leaving a frothing wort at around 200 F.
After the boil, in goes the wort chiller to bring it to yeast-pitching temperature.
And, when the wort is just right, in goes the yeast!
