This tastes really good already. Not even 2 weeks since it was brewed. Kind of a nice, mellow coffee taste with no alcohol burn.

That's what happened to me as well. Not sure why.

Another one to add to my brewing queue:

1. Light APA/IPA (4-4.5%)
2. English mild
3. Baltic porter - I have a holiday ale (spiced ESA ~8%) that I usually brew about now but we're not having company this year so good to try something different.

Just had another pint of the Baltic Porter after a couple of Tropical IPA's. Gotta say, that Lutra yeast works very well with that recipe. 2 day fermentation!

I might do the BP again this weekend. I used Lutra (liquid) last time, I might either try it with dry Lutra or 34/70. If 34/70, it will be under pressure.

I'm going to hopefully have a run of 34/70 beers soon.

 

I'm thinking bopils -> save yeast and split:

 

half into vienna lager

 

half into starter later for baltic porter

The Mighty Mill made quick work of the grain for tomorrow's probable brew day.

I already ran 2-3 lb through the new one and then used the compressor to blow off any dust that stuck.  hopefully that gets rid of the oils and things.

I used the dry Lutra. It behaved exactly like the liquid during fermentation. I kegged it a couple of weeks ago and naturally carbed. I killed 2 kegs today, so the BP goes to the tap tomorrow.

So, I didn't plan on drinking tonight but I figured I'd have a sample glass of my new Tripel. Tastes great but a bit under carbonated. Anyway, I ended up having a few more. At one point, I said, damn, I have that Baltic Porter. Went to the tap, nothing. Ah, I thought I put in the fridge. Still standing in the hallway! Damn! I guess I'll try it tomorrow.

I'm hoping to make this again in a couple of weeks.  I'll either reuse slurry from the 2nd gen vienna lager I'm making today or make a starter with another mason jar I saved from the bopils I made a few weeks ago.

I just sampled the BP that was brewed on 10/17. Outstanding! Better than I remember!
