Anchor Porter Clone

I made a porter last year that was loosely based on Miller's partial mash
recipe from Brewing the Worlds Great Beers.
It was not intended to be a "clone," but it did come
out tasting a lot like Anchor Porter.
This came out with just the perfect bittersweet quality that I like in a
porter. It had a noticeable but not overpowering roasty flavor from the
- 4 lb British pale ale 2-row malt
- 1 lb black patent malt
- 1/2 lb dark crystal malt
- 3.3 lbs M&F extra light syrup
- 12.8 AAU Northern Brewer (boil)
- Wyeast #1084, the Fighting Irish
Mash all grains together in a single infusion at 150F using 1-1/3 qt
water per pound of grain. Sparge with 11 qt water, dissolve syrup,
add water to make 6-1/2 or 7 gallons. Boil 1 hour, using all the hops.
Chill, aerate, pitch, etc. Gravities were 1.055 and 1.016. I used a
two-step starter on the Wyeast, and did a secondary on the beer. 18
days from boil to bottle (this was in November).
