I know it is probably too late to respond at this point, but that was me that had posted on ECY facebook asking about ECY baltic lager yeast. My OG was 1.080 so i needed a pretty hefty pitch. I assumed a lower count than what was probably in there (200B) and did my starter to step it up to the 400-500 range. That sucker didn't take long to begin fermenting, even at 45F! Fermented pretty vigorously for a lager yeast! Only needed 8 days in the fridge before it got to around 1.030, at which point i took it out for a diacetyl rest. After rest the gravity ended up at about 1.020. Tasted it before aging it on JD soaked american oak chips for a week and the profile was as advertised: smooth, rich, creamy! Love this yeast! Still lagering my brew until the end of January. I'll let you know how it turns out! The preview I had after a week on the oak was pretty amazing!
