Brewing Porter today

Here's what I'm brewing this afternoon.
10 pounds American 2-row
6 oz 40L Crystal
6 oz 120L Crystal
6 oz Roasted Barley
1 pound Flaked Barley

Will mash at 154, add 1.3 oz EKG at 60 minutes.
Should be quite tasty!
Be starting the mash at about 1 p.m.
The brewday went very well. Anticipated fg was 1.061, actual was 1.060 with about an extra quart and a half of wort. Chilling with the new chiller did not go so well, might have been due to the leaf hops I used, effectively packing against the chiller and insulating it. Try again soon.
