3.7 / 5.023 ReviewsA little Hoppy?Beer tastes good, but it is a quite a bit more hoppy then I would have expected. The honey and dark malts shine through really nice. Great head! If I brew it again I might cut the hops in half.January 16, 2013HoneyThe honey really shines through with this kit. Makes a good porter.December 30, 2012Pretty good beerThis is a good porter and the honey taste is a bonus. I'm not a beer judge so i wont comment as to style points, but we who drank it enjoyed it.November 20, 2013Tastes OKThis porter is ok, maybe a tad on the expensive side. In any case I like it. Its not too hoppy either, just read the directions and you will see that fractions of an ounce are used, and for a shorter boil time.February 5, 2013Good BeerI am a little unclear on the higher price for this one as well. It comes with less honey than the regular porter and more grain. Last time I checked grain was lighter than honey. Anyway, aside from that this turned out very well. 1 week in primary, about 4 weeks in secondary and a week in the keg getting carbonated. It doesn't have much head at all when I draw it, but that is likely a problem on my end or low initial carbonation. You notice the honey flavor but it is not too strong. Mine came out around 5.5% My wife likes and she is not a huge beer drinker.December 16, 2013Christmas giftMy nephew specifically requested this and another flavor for a possible Christmas gift. It was sent to him, and I haven't had any of it - but it's not Christmas yet. Still, I think he's used your product before, so that should say something.October 28, 2017Purchased
10 months agoGood drinkable beerWe brewed this to drink on election night. Easy to make, and easy to drink :-)_x000D_Well balanced, clean dry finish, a good porter._x000D__x000D_December 8, 2012A Good Porter.I'm not much of a porter drinker, but I thought this one was pretty good. My girlfriend loved it (she's the dark beer drinker). The honey balances out with the roasted flavor of this kit. This is still a "young" beer, so I can imagine it will only get better.February 12, 2013More expensive than the regular Honey Porter kit, but well worth it.I'm very pleased with this kit. I made the kit without changing any of the ingredients/amounts and it turned out to be a very drinkable beer. Good flavor, moderate sweetness - a good session beer. I agree with the earlier reviewer that it tasted great new and can only get better. My only negative comment about it is the price, but I'd brew it again with no hesitation.February 19, 2013Pretty good beerI gave it 2 weeks in the primary, 2 in the secondary, and 2 to carbonate. Its pretty good, and easy to drink. The honey balances the roasted malt flavor.February 22, 2013

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 2 answersHas anyone tried coconut in the porter? Would you try coconut chips in the secondary? Thanks!BEST ANSWER: Hi Adam,
Personally, I have not tried adding coconut to this porter. However, we do offer a coconut porter if you would like to try it. It is called the Lazy Lanai Coconut Porter.I would like to try coconut in the porter. Recommendations on brand of coconut chips to put in and when during the secondary fermentation?BEST ANSWER: Hello!
I would recommend any shredded coconut. In order to get the most out of the coconut, I would recommend toasting it in the oven and then adding directly to the fermenter, allowing it to sit for 1-2 weeks. Depending on the level of coconut flavor you are looking for, 0.5 lbs to 1 lb should do the trick.
