Dandelion Porter Recipe for Extract Brewing

Dandelion Porter Recipe For Extract Brewing
This recipe for Dandelion Porter is based on the All-grain version. I have assumed you know how to brew beer using malt extract and have included in the procedure only those steps and notations that deviate from the standard extract-brewing procedures outlined in Charles Papazian’s The Joy of Home Brewing.



Follow standard extract-brewing procedures to brew 5 gallons of beer.

If you use sage and calendula for aroma hops, let the beer age for about three weeks after it’s been bottled or kegged to let the scents blend and mellow.
