About

I thought that the final gravity of this beer was a bit high, but the beer came out tasting great, and no bottles exploded. In order to call this a porter it needs more hops; therefore, I think it is a Scotch ale. Original Gravity: 1.055. Final Gravity: 1.017. Primary Ferment: 4 days. Secondary Ferment: 4 weeks
