Alcatraz Porter

Beer Style:porter, Anchor porter
Recipe Type:all-grain

I recently tasted my all-grain porter against Anchor’s and the big thing I notice was Anchor Porter is thick, creamy. Mine is low carbonated, but it does not have that creamy feel. This was my first all-grain brew and my first porter.

It has a good malt flavor. Next time I would cut back on the hops some.
