Fred’s Honey Porter

Porter is a dark style of beer developed in London from well-hopped beers made from brown malt. The name was first recorded in the 18th century, and is thought to come from its popularity with street and river porters.

Notes

Brew day 11/9/13 used starter with stir plate. Very active fermentation needed blow off tube by second day. Transferred to secondary 11/16/13 wort continued to ferment for 5 more days. I had intended for this to be dark amber, but it taste more like a porter. Friends and family really like this one.
