Not a big fan of Porters... have only made them twice. But I support how any of our brethren pursuing this competition. I like how you got this up and pinned with sufficient time to get everyone notice of the competition. Keep up the good work BBM.

I've never made a Porter. Not s style I particularly care for, but I'm sure we must have someone here who does. If we could win a few of these Club only matches, it should increase traffic to the forum.

I have the same problem, the porters I have made are just too borderline as stouts to enter in comp

I guess the fact that I've made exactly one in the last few years disqualifies me.

i've made a few brown porters (basically the same recipe). search for my recipe if you want. I'm not sure how it would do in competition but I like it.

I was thinking about entering one for our club. Who's going to do the judging for Brews Bros?

There's only one way for you to find out how it would do in a competition...

Interesting how everyone feels about Porters because as a noob I feel that why drink a Porter since you can have a stout. I porter feels a bit watered down...like a Pinot in wines.

So is Mtn, and I'm sure several others.

I'd be disqualified if I entered a beer to represent Brews Bros and I might be disqualified if I entered a beer to represent Brew Brothers of Pikes Peak.

Right. Club-only comps have a first round within the club to determine who will represent the club in the larger comp. You generally send in 3 bottles for a club-only. One for the club comp, and two for the big comp.

a robust porter could be a lot heavier than a stout. also - stout is a subset of porter.

I don't have the time yet. I saw this gem in one of the Porter threads in the Recipe sub-forum:

This looks like an incredibly solid English porter recipe to me.If you cut the crystal in half and put in a half pound of oats, it would be very similar to my very first AG batch - which just happened to win First Place in a competition I entered it in (and also got an honorable mention in the Best of Show round).

Maybe someone should reach out to Howie.

I prefer porters to many stouts because they seem to have more going on - particularly vs. a dry stout. It's not just a weaker stout and in fact a lot of porters are higher gravity than many stouts.
