This recipe is an adapted version of a Bridgeport Porter clone from a 2001 issue of BYO. I had to modify it a little based on my options from the brew shop and the hops I had in the freezer. I switched the recipe to all domestic grains, not for cost, but for principle.


  • 9 lbs 2-row
  • 1/2 lbs chocolate
  • 3/4 lbs roasted barley
  • 1 lbs Crystal (40L)
  • 1/2 Munich


  • 1/2 oz. Chinook (12.2% alpha) @ 60
  • 1 oz. Chinook @ 5


  • Fermentis Safale S-04 dry yeast (with 1 liter starter)
  • Irish Moss

That’s like the fewest hops I’ve used in a long time, but the Replicator interview with the brewer said to avoid over-hopping it. I figure the folks around me could use a break from hops…. for one beer.

Here’s the qbrew file.
