So back in October, I had the opprotunity to brew one of my recipes at Chattanooga Brewing Company by virtue of winning their Pro-Am Brewing Competition that they hold twice a year with The Barley Mob, Chattanooga’s Homebrew Club. CBC is a great supporter of homebrewing and craft beer, and they open their brewhouse to a local homebrewer twice a year. For their fall Pro-Am, they asked for Porter recipes and I was both surprised and excited to have my brew chosen out of 13 entries.
Special thanks to Mark, Jonathan, Rivers, and the whole CBC crew for a great brew day. It was a blast to brew a production sized batch on their awesome brewhouse. My entry was a fairly traditional Robust Porter recipe with just a touch of Cascade hops to give it a nice chocolate and citrus blend:
Scott’s Barley Mob Porter
10 lbs 6 oz 2 Row Malt
1 lb Munich Malt
12 oz Crystal 40
4 oz English Chocolate Malt
6 oz Carafa III Special Dehusked Malt
1 oz East Kent Goldings @ 60 minutes
.4 oz Cascade @ 60 minutes
1 oz Fuggles @ 15 minutes
.2 oz Cascade @ 15 minutes
1 oz Willamette @ Flameout
.2 oz Cascade @ Flameout
34.6 IBU 33.8 SRM 1.063 OG Mash @ 152
I believe this batch is history. There may be a keg or two remaining around town. There is a Wild Turkey barrel aged version that will be part of CBC’s Groundhog Day Tap Takeover extravaganza that begins next week. Get you some. When it’s gone, it’s gone.
