Might want to boil the honey for a bit I think, to kill any outside "bugs" that might be present.

Recipe sounds pretty good, my wife loves porters and has been asking me to brew one.

Brewed on Sunday - yeast is still going nuts. Smells great already.

I ended up adding the honey at the last minute of the boil, just to be sure that it was at sanitary temps for a bit and that it wouldn't sink to the bottom. I bought it from the grocery store, so it was probably pasteurized already. Plus honey is antibiotic, so I'm not too worried.

Will it make much of a difference if this ferments closer to 70 deg?

Update -

This has been in the bottles for a couple weeks now, and is tasting great. I followed the directions here but the color came out on the light side for a porter. Any thoughts on why that might be?

Just put a batch in the fermenter. Smelled pretty good, OG closer to 1.08. I guess we will see how it goes.

Just moved to secondary. Tastes pretty good but I would like a little more honey flavor. Still has a few weeks before its done though.

I'll be brewing this recipe (more or less) soon and I too was hoping for a mild honey flavor. I'm thinking of using some honey at the priming stage just before bottling to hold some of the flavor...what do you think of that idea??

I tasted this brew when I moved it to secondary and really liked it. I tasted it again when I was about ready to bottle and loved it. It took me about three days to decide if I wanted to use honey for priming and I decided not to because I loved what I had so much. I just drank one to check on the carbonation level and it is outstanding, but no honey flavor at all. I don't think you can go wrong if you use the honey for priming, but it is fantastic without it. I will most likely do the honey thing when I make this brew again.

Default Baltic Honey Porter


I brewed this last night. I modified the recipe to make 5.5 gallons. I steeped grains for 30 min at 155. I added one can of LME with the Chinook at 60 min and added the other can with the cascade at 15. Honey was added at 5 min. Yeast was rehydrated and pitched at 72 degrees.
