Coal Miners Hands Robust Porter Recipe

I just finished this porter up and I love it.  Typically I am hyper critical of my beers, always finding the smallest of imperfections. This is one of those times where I have no complaints, well aside from maybe brewing another 5 gallons with no vanilla added.  Here is the recipe if anyone is looking to brew it!

Yeast

Fermentation Ingredients
Amt Name Type # %/IBU
1.0 pkg American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) Starter Yeast 12

Post Fermentation

Add (1) medium toast American oak stick, 6 oz’s of cacao nibs and 1 scrapped – cleaned vanilla bean once fermentation has completed. Leave in contact with beer for 7-10 days. Taste and age longer if additional oak or vanilla flavor is desired. This final step is not required as it is an incredible beer with out the vanilla, oak or cacao.  The inspiration for this homebrew all grain robust porter recipe was Jamil Zainasheff’s Heretic Shallow Grave Porter which is available at MoreBeer.  I just made a few tweaks to the recipe to make it more to my liking.

That is a savings of 50% but it is for today only! I personally use whirlfloc – whirl flock home brew clarifier in just about every batch of home brewer beer that I brew. Whirlfloc home brewing tablets are a coagulant and fining agent that is a purified blend of high molecule weight carrageenan powder extracted from Irish Moss in tablet form. Whirlfloc home brew clarifier helps with the clumping, settling and coagulation of proteins  which cause haze. It allows for a cleaner fermentation and clearer finished beer! Whirlfloc  is super easy to use, just add 1 tablet per 10 gallons of wort is ideal. For a 5 gallon batch, simply break the tablet in half. Add in the last 5 minutes of your boil for optimal effect.
