Dark and Mysterious it is. . . . .

Justin and I bottled the Dark and Mysterious Cinnamon Porter last evening amid tastings of Ommegang and Rogue's Morimoto Soba Ale (both delicious, by the way). The CP has really come of age, with the extra days in secondary really helping it to mellow, in both hoppiness and cinnamon flavor. We'll see what happens when its carbed up.

It is unfortunate to say that this is the last brew that we have in the pipeline right now. Only air occupies our vessels. This should soon change. We have the next brew date scheduled for Super Bowl Sunday, with partial mash batches of XLTPA and Rising Sun Red Ale on the ticket.

Keep checking back.

Cheers,

Dave

I'm very interested in your cinnamon porter. Would you mind posting or emailing me some of your recipe specifications?(elbeardedbrewer@yahoo.com) Or at least about how much cinnamon you used. I've been toying with the idea of adding some spices to a porter and cinnamon sounds like a great idea.
Very interested to follow how this turns out!
Cheers!

Its a basic Porter recipe, 1.054 OG, 40ish IBUs, with cinnamon added with 15 minutes left in the boil. We used cinnamon sticks, about 12, 2 inch long each, and then left them in the fermenter.

Primary for 3 weeks, then the same for secondary.
