I based this on a recipe I found on Beer tools. Okay no spruce.

If that's the quality of recipes on that site, you might want to avoid them!  Take a look at the AHA recipe wiki in the link I provided.

Spruce in a Baltic porter?  I wouldn't.  Also, Baltic porters are frequently (though not always) made with lager yeast.  Cascade hops are not to sty;le for a Baltic porter, either, if that matters to you.  Take a look at some of these recipes for ideas...

I tried some at the brewery when they were still working on the recipe.  I admit to being underwhelmed.  Guess I'll pick some up to see what they finally came up with.

Well, this is crazy....I just got a German pils in the fermenter. 12 lb. Best pils, 1 lb. Best Munich, target OG 1.042.  I got 10.5 gal. out of the mash at 1.044.  Promash tells me that's 99% efficiency.  I got 8.5 gal. of 1.051 in the fermenter.  Promash tells me 99% again.  When I do it by hand I get about 87%, much more believable.  I double checked all weights and measurements.

Martin, I think I recall somebody on the Northern Brewer forum using it.

I'd say that temp control is a bigger priority for you than AG.  It will improve your extract beers and you'll still need it when you go AG.  Take a look at my website for the Cheap'n'Easy way to go AG.  You can start planning now and building the equipment as time and budget allow.

Being as big an asshole as the co worker doesn't seem like a very good solution to me....

The brewer at our Rogue local gave me a taste of midnight wheat from a bag he had.  Very smooth, comparable to carafa.

Not a problem...crash as usual.

Had a McChouffe a few days ago.  It's a winter standard for me.  While it does seem to have a low level of what we think of as "Belgian character" I wouldn't go as far as calling it a Scotch ale, exactly, either.  Let's just call it "a damn fine beer!".

Ah, didn't realize the hefe was the second beer.  I have to admit that the words "malty backbone" never cross my mind with a hefe.  I always think of then as kind of light and thin....but I'm no expert on hefe!
