Baltic Porter - Guideline ?

(1/4) > >>

ndcube:
The style guidelines say:

"Complex alcohol and ester profile of moderate strength, and reminiscent of plums, prunes, raisins, cherries or currants, occasionally with a vinous Port-like quality."

Where do these flavors come from?  Are there lager yeasts that have that kind of profile?

Aging and a complex grain bill.

pinnah:
I make my version of a Baltic with 2112,
it could contribute some of those qualities.

babalu, what IBU do you make yours to?
I was a little suprised that "the guidelines" top out at 40.

I'd have to check when I get home.
Brewed it yesterday and 45 is sticking in my head

A long boil helps as well.
