is that seasonal or year round?  sometime I'll have to make it a point to look for it.

I wonder how mine compares to the original? If I ever see any I'll have to get some and do a side by side.

I can't remember - did you try to follow the original recipe more closely than I did?  I'm thinking if not ours might be noticeably different but not necessarily in a bad way :cheers:

Year round I think. 12/4 pack is cheap too!

With one major difference, though. I use Lutra.

Nope, strictly Lutra. It tastes great to me (my wife also really likes it, too), so I'll keep doing it that way.

About to head out to my LHBS to get grain for another Baltic Porter. Pretty much a regular in my kegerators now.

just kicked the last of this stuff yesterday.  by volume it's highly efficient but I think next time I'll make something big that isn't roasty for a change.

Brewed another BP today. Went smoothly, OG 1.096. I pitched some Lutra slurry from November/December, so I'll see how it goes. If no action by tomorrow morning, I'll pitch a dry Lutra packet.

Sorry I missed this somehow. Greatly appreciated but I've been blessed with too much generosity recently. Thank you so much for the offer!

It's rocking and rolling this morning. I guess the slurry is fine.
