I used WLP810, and loved the result!

I agree that WLP810 is amazing for this beer. That's what I used for mine and I couldn't be happier with that one. It took me from 1.080 to 1.019 in 2 weeks. I'm just sad I only have a few bottles left because 4 months later it is really starting to taste amazing and I thought it was good earlier on...

Broke mine out a party, and it did not survive. Like you, I wish I could have had it down the road.

Just found out mine took bronze for the category in a large competition. Score sheet said it would probably benefit from some more aging (been in bottles 5mos). Sucks I only have 2 bottles left!

What's your recipe look like? I really want to do a Baltic Porter but I'm just trying to learn as much about the style as I can. If anyone has tried any Northwest craft brewed Baltic Porters I'd be interested in learning the names so I can keep my eyes peeled for some. I've seen Alaskan but I don't know much about that brewery.

This was my first big beer and I had some efficiency issues. Even after adding 2 lbs of DME I came up 10 points shy of my OG target.

Heres the recipe for a 5.5 gallon batch:

12lbs Munich
7lbs Pilsner
8oz Crystal 60
8oz Special B
6oz Debittered Black Malt
4oz Chocolate malt
2lbs light DME

1.5oz Sterling (5.7AA) @ 60 min
.5oz Sterling (5.7AA) @ 15 min

Mash at 150f

My OG came to 1.080 and FG was 1.019.

This is the only Baltic Porter I have ever even tasted so I can't recomend a commerial example.

I average 70-75% on my average beers, but this one killed me!!! I mashed in too thin and then wasn't able to sparge very much and it was just a nightmare... I will be doing this one again in the near future to try and see if I can come out with better results. The next batch will probably be hidden away in a closet for about 6 mos before drinking as this one really does get better with time.

I usually go about 1.5-1.6 qt/lb, but with big beers I will go down to 1.2-1.3 just to make a little room for sparge. If you have too, just collect in another pot and combine the two. Takes a little longer, but you get what you want.
