Scott's "Potpourri Steam" Porter
Recipe added: 04/07/99
I call this one potpourri because I used all the leftover grains I had lying around the house. I also screwed up when I ordered my yeast. I meant to order ale yeast but instead ordered California lager so I was stuck with it. Lucky for me it ferments at ale temperatures. Fermented at 65 degees.
Just bottled it, so I'm not sure of the results. Great hop aroma, though.
