Baltic Porter

Continental-Style Baltic Porter

[This recipe was featured in the September/October 2017 issue of Zymurgy magazine.]

In the mid-1800s, Baltic porter as a style relieved a formative transformation: lager yeast. Cold shipping of the first strong porter exports had mellowed the English-brewed porters, but beers brewed in the Baltic countries needed yeast adapted to ferment cool, not just condition cold.

Lager yeast therefore became the Baltic brewery standard; ale yeasts were unsuitable, and strong porters lost much of their ale yeast-derived ester and phenols,, gaining signature lager smoothness.

This pale ale has a simple malt bill to allow the fantastic flavor of GP75 hops to shine through, giving amazing tropical and citrus fruit flavors. Bittering hops are minimal due to the bittering effect of the large amounts of aroma and post-boil hops.

Traditional Bock

Prost Bock

Bock (German for goat) is likely a descendant of some of the oldest German lagers in the world. It evolved in the Franconia region of Germany, just north of modern day Bavaria. Bock has one of the largest ranges of the German beers and can be light (like a helles bock or maibock) to very dark; it can also be moderate to very strong in alcohol. A traditional bock is generally not hoppy, but more malt forward and brewed to at least a starting gravity of 1.064. We sat down with Larry Leinhart, owner and brewer at Prost Brewing Co. in Denver, Colorado to see how he brews his traditional bock. Prost Brewing Co. is  a brewery that has made a name for itself as a lager brewery. Their brewhouse is a classic copper German two-vessel system built in 1963. This recipe was originally featured in the November/December 2011 issue of Zymurgy.
