Eleventh Hour Porter

Morning to one and all!

After a late start I decided to whack on a brew to take to my mums during the festive period, using my standard porter recipe I'm going to have a second attempt and making it into a chocolate and vanilla version (hopefully without injecting it full of videne!).

Having almost forgotten it was Armistice Day today I was ready to mash in at 11:00 am, so a rather fitting name for the brew, recipe is same as always:

Eleventh Hour
Brown Porter

I could have let you have some special yeast if you wanted.

It's basically the same as using Nottingham! Came in at 1.048 due to being 2L over volume otherwise it would have been around the 1.052 mark according to Brewmate.

Dunno mate, it's still sitting in the cask ageing away, need to go and buy some cocoa nibs for when I tap it, that's when they will be added.

How do you sterelise the nibs before you add them? Or do you not bother Kyle?

Don't bother mate, same with the vanilla pods, just make sure everything else is sanitised and chuck them in.
