This is spot on from what I see also a great article 👍🏾. Let me know how that beer turns out!

I tried the first one today after 2 weeks in the bottle. Nice smoky aroma and flavor, hops balanced (I used Triple Perle--not exactly the traditional hops, but it's what I had). Some chill haze, but I don't care. Nice summer beer at 3.6% ABV.

If typical Polish styles are sought for, it's Baltic Porter (rather than Grätzer) that is the most typical of them. Unlike Grätzer, it's not a lost-and-revived regional specialty but a solid staple of Polish beer scene, never ceasing its popularity - like Okocim Porter f.ex.

There's a recipe for Okocim in Szamatulski's "Clone Brews" (there's also a recipe for another immensely popular Polish beer, Żywiec, a Pilsner-type lager).

Here is a nice recipe of Warszawa Porter which I have cloned last winter with a great success:

And another version on Brew Your Own: Warszawski Porter Lodowy (Warsaw Baltic Porter) - Brew Your Own

Do you blend in some 2 row for enzymes? Seems like 100% wheat malt wouldn’t have enough diastatic power to convert on its own without adding enzymes?

did 100% EichenRauchWeizenMalz Grätzer several times... no enzymes... no stuck sparges... 78% extraction efficiency...
Not sure if 100% Wheat Malt is capable of converting adjunct unmalted grains, but it perfectly converts itself.
