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...

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.

I think BYO had an issue that focused on Baltic Porters a few years back (it may be longer, as I haven't been a subscriber for a while now).

You might find something on their site.  I've had very good luck over the years with recipes from BYO and think they are a great resource.

No disrespect to the recipe Wiki, Denny.  I've used it myself recently.

I understand what you're saying, Joe...there's more than one place to get good recipes.  Unfortunately, there's also more than one place to get bad recipes, too!

there's a Baltic porter recipe in Gordon's book too, it's not done fermenting yet but it tastes good so far.

The only thing I don't like about BeerTools is that the recipe database is *enormous*. You really have to do some work to separate the wheat from the chaff.
