Style: Robust Porter
Do you like Theakston's Old Peculier?
Ultimate Porter is our most popular porter recipe kit, based on a hard-to-find but fantastically good British porter with a funny name. Ultimate Porter is one of out top 10 best-selling recipe kits. The color is almost opaque black, like a stout, but Ultimate Porter doesn't have the full thick body of a stout. The body is medium, and holding the glass up to light reveals beautiful red highlights in the deep black color. Compared to the ordinary porter, Ultimate Porter has more caramel, chocolate, and coffee-like roasted malt flavors. To make it Ultimate, we've added imported Demerara sugar and a highly-refined version of molasses called Black Treacle. This is a truly dark beer that has changed the minds of people who previously though that they didn't like dark beers, because it's strong and full of flavor but not heavy.
Add this product to your cart in addition to your recipe kit if you would like the included dry yeast replaced with live yeast and an ice pack for a $5.00 surcharge.
