"We just returned from a vac. trip to the southwest corner of Utah & Arizona. FYI - I noticed that one of the microbrews available in this area is “Polygamy Porter”, & the label says “When you’re having more than one”………………with associated artwork."
#Kelly's Bitter Porter
Do you see that? That big foamy head? CARBONATION!
I am so happy to say, that I have finally made a successful homebrew. The first one was missing body and a bit flat. The second….so flat, so much sediment, so much yuck. I guess 3 is the charm. I really can’t tell you how excited and happy this made me. Adding to the excitement is the fact that it tastes damn good. Nice, smooth, chocolaty porter. I think a tasting party might be in order.

Yep that’s right, there’s beer grain in these little guys. And they taste pretty good if I do say so, like a little angel flew into your mouth and farted deliciousness all over your tongue. I did a variation of this recipe. Essentially, took this but grated my own chocolate, added brown sugar and spent grain. And voila!
