Porters have had a long tradition of added flavorings. While references cite a long list of strange ingredients, we add only the familiar and very agreeable Scharffen Berger cocoa powder, with mellow and warm cocoa aromas and flavors. Also consider enrollment in one of our Upcoming Brewing Classes where we'll help take those brewing skills to the next level.

  • This kit contains all the ingredients you'll need to make five gallons of beer. You will be following a two stage fermentation system using a plastic bucket as a primary fermentor to contain the beer until heavy foaming ceases. The beer is then siphoned into a secondary fermentor, a five gallon carboy where the beer stays until fermentation is complete.

    Be sure you have all the equipment below before getting started. We carry everything you'll need to get brewing.

    Well, the results will tell the story. I am very experienced, and have bought this kit many times. Surprised to see what has always been considered a critical step (aeration) omitted from the new instructions. But the yeast has changed as well so it may be a reflection of different characteristics. As I say, the results will tell. Good kit, good ingredients, simple directions, fast shipping.
