Baltic Porter - All Munich?

(1/3) > >>

ndcube:
I'm looking into brewing a Baltic Porter sometime this winter.  I notice alot of recipes use Vienna, Munich and Pilsen malt.

Would it no longer be the same style if I sub-ed Munich for the Vienna?

bonjour:
It would be a different beer, not necessarily a different style

not sure I follow you - are you saying can you sub Munich in and just do Munich and Pils as your base malts?

Sure.  Switching out Munich and Vienna in this style isn't a deal breaker - the flavor will certainly change a bit, but its still well within guidelines.

In fact, I don't think I've seen many recipes that include Vienna come to think of it (and I would notice being that I really dig vienna).

I'm making a BP next weekend - using Munich I & II and Pils along with chocolate and Carafa II.

Baltic Porters seem to benefit from a diverse grain bill.
These beers have A LOT of character

blatz:
so you're saying I should add the vienna as you did in yours?  consider it done! (just now it looks just like yours)
