I'd sure appreciate a tried and true Baltic Porter recipe. Thanks.

If you read the 'ultimate winter brew' thread, Jim, you'll get the basic parameters for the one I've brewed half a dozen times. I can dig up the specifics at home tonight if you're interested.

This is the recipe Nathan Moore came up with. He was one of the folks responsible for bringing it into the BJCP Style Guide. Note that you're supposed to soak the dark grains in cold water over night and just use the liquid, or else cut the dark grains in half. He recommends a lager yeast. Brew on, Tom

You can do a lot worse than the Sinebrychoff (yes, I'm sure I've got all those vowels in the wrong places) recipe in Clone Brews (or is it Beer Captured? Sorry, I'm 1000 from home and my books aren't handy). I've made it and it was heavenly.

Paul, did you use the Swedish Ale yeast?

The Zurich Lager yeast is currently availiable from WhiteLabs. It is reported to be the old Hurlmann strain. I'm hoping it will be the perfect yeast for a Baltic porter, as I pitched it last Sunday.

I brewed my BP last November & it's been bottled since March. I was very pleased with the results from the Zurich Lager yeast. Now it's just a matter of staying out of the stash & letting it age. I'm looking to the Beer Gods for strength & will power!

I brewed a BP in January 2003 that now officially rocks! Took a long time to mellow out. Too bad I only have 6 bottles left - damn the constant sampling!

Is the Swedish Ale yeast still available? I used it back in 1998/9 and thought it was terrific. Nice fruity esters that went well in a BP as well as a mild and an American wheat that I made with it. Haven't seen it for sale for a couple of years, though.

Chumley,
It's now known as #1187-Ringwood Ale. I use it annually in my house Robust Porter.

Thanks, Beertracker! This is the best thing I've read on this board in quite some time (well, with exception of the O2 in wort debate ).

I guess the old saying that while Wyeast may change the name, they never change the number, isn't true anymore. I will have to order some WY1187 this fall.

Ringwood is one of the best ale yeasts I've used. I'll have to order some of that too. I'd forgotten all about it!

Wyeast's description of the Ringwood strain (1187) mentions its "notorious" reputation. This yeast has been called the "seven-day wonder" by some brewpubs because it's fast, tolerates relatively high fermentation temperatures and drops bright quickly. However, the downside is that it's prone to diacetyl production if underptiched and/or underaerated. Again this makes it a good strain for commercial breweries, but homebrewers should be careful.

I see that the 1187 has the same characteristics as the 1742, but has a different description.

1742 Swedish Ale yeast. Stark beer Nordic-style yeast of Scandinavian origin, floral nose malty finish. Flocculation medium; apparent attenuation 68-72%. (64-74o F)

Which reminds me of a question: what the heck is "stark" beer? I saw it posted on a bottle of Carnegie Porter, so I have always assumed that 1742/1187 is the Carnegie Porter yeast (one of my favorite baltic porters).

Hey Fredrik, what's a stark beer?

I believe "stark" means "strong" in Swedish. In Sweden the tax is based on the alcohol content, so these beers are taxed at a higher rate.

Based on my one use of this yeast, I'd say "stark" means "it sucks"...;)
LIfe begins at 60...1.060, that is.

I don't know about Swedish, but "stark" means "strong" in German.
