I am looking to the future to make a really decent mild as my dad likes it....pretty sure it Joseph Holts or their bitter. So has anyone done a decent clone of that beer please and can share the recipe.

The other beer I have really got into is Guinness West Indies Porter so are there any good porters out there anyone could recommend that are smooth and easy to drink? Heard a few comments about oatmeal in stout to make a nice brew, any comments please?

I can't help with the mild sorry, but others will. For porter you can't go wrong with the Fullers London Porter recipe...

I also have a variation on it that I really like...

I prefer not to use oats, other people love oatmeal stout.

Hi MSK, and welcome. 

I like amber malt in a porter. Not used WLP028 but the Wyeast 1728 is great, and I think it's the same strain.

Hi thanks so much Clibit, sure thing, Amber I find gives coffee, its real beautiful. Yeah I think its the Youngers strain, is pretty clean and tasty, can be used even for fairly high gravity beers but I never brew'd one so I cannot say for sure :D

I was going to suggest the Fuller's London Porter recipe ... but Clibit has already done it.  I brewed it about 18 months ago, used the Wyeast 1968 ... bang on, about the nearest thing I have ever done to a clone brew.
Multi-tasking, easy, drink beer and watch telly.

Hi Piperbrew,
I'll dig a Wilson's of Newton Heath Mild from 1955 and a Cornbrook XX Mild from 1950 if you're interested ?
