I'm thinking about making a Baltic Porter (I want to pitch onto my California Lager yeast cake), is a baltic porter recipe generally the same as other porters, but with the lager yeast? It looks like some people use a lot of Munich malt also.
Primary: Cherrywood Smoked Porter
60 Minute IPA
On tap:Amber Ale
Milk Stout

I think they are different recipes. I really like Baltic porter...more than any other porter. I think it is an excellent beer to re-pitch with California lager yeast. Sorry, nothing helpful

A Baltic porter is just about a whole different animal to the other porters, but California Lager yeast is great for it.

Beer is good for anything from hot dogs to heartache.

A Baltic Porter often has the malt flavors reminiscent of an English brown porter and the restrained roast of a schwarzbier, but with a higher OG and alcohol content than either. Very complex, with multi-layered flavors.
