New World Order Porter

Recipe added: 01/19/98

A beautiful beer so round it rolls. I formulated this beer to have no edges whatsoever, and all the ingredients conspire towards this end. The rich base malt, smooth-yet-dark Caramunich and slightly spicy brown malt provide a rich foundation for this beer, full of complexity but not rough. The exact variety of bittering hops probably doesn't matter too much, but noble finishing hops are requisite. I use Hallertauer, but I suspect Saaz would be excellent as well. The yeast is critical. Wyeast's Swedish Ale yeast (1742) accentuates the malt, leaving behind a flowery aroma that jives oh-so-well with noble finishing hops. Wyeast London Special (1968) or the ubiquitous American Ale (1056) would probably work just fine. Enjoy, and please let me know how you like this beer and how you modify it to suit your particular likes and needs.
