Smoked Porter, May 2 2010

Alas, another Smoked Porter.  The last of the Agave Smoked Porter was gone long ago but recently I found a few bottles of that gem.  We bottled out some of that batch for QUAFF and our local Cantina.  I found the stash and had one.  It developed so nicely in the bottle.  I've made a number of changes to this batch to try a new approach.  There's no agave for one, and it'll ferment with WLP007 rather than WLP001.
