Pirates 'o the Baltic - Lithuanian Porter
 
Grains:

6.6 lbs light LME
3 lbs light DME
6 oz Vienna malt
6 oz Munich malt
1/2 lb chocolate malt
1/2 lb crystal malt 60L

Hops:
2 oz Northern Brewer - 7.5% AA - 60
1/2 oz Hallertau - 15
1 oz Saaz -5

Yeast: Irish Ale

Directions: Steep malts for 20 mins at 150 F, then remove, and proceed to boil with extract

Notes: I left these in the bottle for 1 month - they served VERY well in winter, but I am still drinking them now. Very tasty! I did not carbonate very much.

Mmm..this looks good. What makes it 'Lithuanian' ? Have you converted this to AG yet?

Man... it's SO good. I had a couple bottles last night. STILL incredible, fresh and tasty. Picked up slight roast-y overtones, a little sweet, full-bodied and luscious...

(Is it a problem if I want to make out with my beer right now?)

It's Lithuanian because it's based a variety of porter called Baltic Porter, but I am 1/4 Lithuanian, so it's my favorite of the Baltic states.

I have never done AG, so I can't help ya with that conversion.

try replacing the dme and the lme with 11.25 lbs. of 2 row pale malt.

everything else the same.

That would be my guess.
