Add yeast from starter. 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. Original Gravity: 1.054 Final Gravity: 1.010 Primary Ferment: 10 days Recipe By : Bryan Gros
