Sipping the end result of our Peat-Smoked Porter kit might remind you of rich, black coffee laced with single-malt Scotch. A midnight-black strong porter with an assertive profile: roasty, bitter, and big with underlying herbal, briny smoke character.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details
Sipping the end result of our Peat-Smoked Porter kit might remind you of rich, black coffee laced with single-malt Scotch. This is a midnight-black strong porter with an assertive profile: roasty, bitter, and big with underlying herbal, briny smoke character. Caramel malts emphasize the full body and bring a bit of balancing sweetness. This beer is a great wintertime nightcap and adds an interesting dimension to barbecue.

Brown sugar
One of my favorites to brew double the steep time on the grains mash the juices out of the bag a few times during the steep and use 6 ounces of brown sugar to carbonate

Excellent and easy to make. The peat flavor comes through nicely. Perhaps a touch too hoppy for my porter preference, but not overwhelming.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one
Loved it so much I was hesitant to share. Will definitely brew again!

Good flavor. I liked this batch. I did have some inconsistency with carbonation but that was on me and not the kit. I would brew this kit again!

Highly recommended
I pushed the envelope and sampled just a week after bottling. Even in its youth, this Porter is bold, with a complex blend of flavors. I will brew this again

Anyone have a final gravity on this one?
Brian C on Sep 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I made two batches with an O.G. of 1.065. They came in at 1.018 Final Gravity. A third batch, which I failed to note the O. G. came in at a 1.016 for F.G. Kit calls for an O.G of 1.062, but I do full volume boil and don't add water to correct the O.G. if I am close.
Hi: I just unpacked the box and read the directions and I have a couple of questions. One: I don't see separate, labeled bags of the 0.25 lbs Briess Caramel 80 and the 0.25 lbs Peated Malt specialty grains. Are these already mixed into the 1 lb Black Malt bag? Have they just been omitted or what should I be looking for? Two: What does it mean to "crush" the grain? Do you just work the bag in your hands or is it more rigorous? The grain already appears to be in fairly small pieces as it is. Thanks, Jim.
J I on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The different types of specialty grain are mixed into one sealed bag rather than packed separately. As for crushing the grain, this is a process that cracks the hulls of the grains and allows water to saturate them at a good rate to extract sugars without bringing out too many tannins from the grain hulls. This is done with a grain mill, and I believe these kits have the grain milled before shipping (you can tell because most of the barley kernels will be broken or cracked). In a pinch, you can put the grain in a ziplock bag and crush it with a rolling pin (assuming it isn't already crushed).
Anyone have a final gravity on this one?
A shopper on Sep 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I brewed this recipe in March of 2016. I had an original SG of 1.062. I racked it into a glass secondary 11 days later. It had a SG of 1.018. I bottled it a bit over a month later with a final SG of 1.017.
Anyone tried adding whiskey to this brew? I was thinking of adding 16oz of Dubliner Irish whiskey to it.
