Baltic Porter
 
Its been a LONG time since i've done a porter, and i can't find my original recipe. So, doing some research looking at difference recipes, i developed my own. I tend to like porters are the darker side, with some good hop notes to them. How does this look for a 5 gallon recipe?

11 lbs 8.0 oz Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM) Grain 1 71.9 %
1 lbs Brown Malt (65.0 SRM) Grain 2 6.3 %
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 3 6.3 %
1 lbs Munich Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 5 6.3 %
1 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 4 6.3 %
8.0 oz Special B Malt (180.0 SRM) Grain 6 3.1 %
1.00 oz Target [11.00 %] - Boil 45.0 min Hop 7 32.2 IBUs
0.50 oz Northdown [8.50 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 8 2.7 IBUs
1.0 pkg Octoberfest/Marzen Lager (White Labs #WLP820) [35.49 ml] Yeast 9 -

*NOTE* I was planning on doing 4 versions of this

1) Basic
2) Substitude 2 lbs base malt, for 2 lbs smoked malt (not peat malt)
3) Basic + Vanilla (I have home made vanilla extract being made)
4) Basic + Vanilla, oak and bourbon


What do you think? Would this recipe do ok with all the versions I'm thinking of doing?

Cheers! :mug:

So how did it go? Did it fit into the Baltic style?

This beer turned out amazing! I ended up doing a 10 galling batch, doubled the entire grain bill and substituted 4 lbs base malt with 4 lbs smoked malt. I used 3 vanilla beans per 5 gallon keg and just tossed them in. Took this to Dark Lord day and had people asking which brewery I got this from because they wanted more. I would say the 4 lbs of smoke malt as perfect because the vanilla beans helped smooth it out just enough.

I had this in primary for 3 weeks, 2 days of dyacital rest and then laggered for 7 weeks. I am going to brew this exact same recipe again this winter and 1 5 gallon keg is going to get 1 oz of cocoa nibs as well as the 3 vanilla beans.

This is probably a great base beer if you want to oak age it as well

Oh, and to answer your question...yes, it fit the baltic porter style really well

I'm updating my original post with the 10 gallon recipe
