Giving Birth to a Porter in Smithtown

All-Grains Home Brew Class, an outdoor brewing tutorial featuring the educational creation of 25 gallons of porter by Port Jeff Brewing Company, Ghost Cat Brewing, and Karp’s Homebrew Shop, was hosted at Tap and Barrel on September 15.

The class recipe, a tweak of Port Jeff Brewing Company Port Jeff Porter, used 41 pounds of malted grain (black patent, chocolate, crystal, and pale), Fuggle hops, and molasses (Port Jeff Porter is brewed with organic honey from South Paw Farms in Manorville).
