the orange will be from bitter orange peel, sorry.
I didn't know that baltics were lagered......interesting.
I DO really like raisin-prune in my porters, which is why I was asking. I've never used C120 before, I'm pretty new to brewing.
This recipe seems interesting to me as far as a base porter goes. I think I might eliminate the vanilla and orange, grab a lager yeast, and brew this up. Except I'd have to partial mash, my tun's only 5 gallon....
Just realized you used East Kent at 5min....awesome.
