Notes

JT's base recipe, modified a little by me. This is a little bigger than a standard brown porter.

Using medium toast french (I'm using american) oak wood cubes, soak 30 in gold rum and 30 in white rum for a month. (15 of each per 5 gallons)

Using Hugh Baird C50/C60 instead of American C40 and Maris Otter instead of 2-row.

In secondary (keg), add these until it tastes good (approximately 6-8 weeks).

JT mashed at 154 and used cascade hops.
