Brew #51: Imperial Porter

This porter is pretty much a replica of the porter I did two months ago. This time there is less black malt and a little more münchener malt. I liked the previous one a lot, but I thought that it had a little too sharp bite from the black malts. This is an attempt at making it a bit rounder. The increased mash temperature should also make it a little richer.

The single pack of dry yeast seems to have been plenty as the fermentation started soon after pitching and it is currently very vigorous.

The batch was brewed 2007-06-17.
