From Browar PINTA in Wieprz, Poland, this rich, big-bodied Baltic porter gets a long boil and tropical accents from dry hopping with Sabro and Strata.
This recipe is based on PINTA’s dry-hopped imperial Baltic porter. You can skip the dry hopping for a somewhat more traditional version—though still more bitter than most—or you can change out the hops to your own favorite varieties. Keys to success here include pitching plenty of healthy lager yeast, fermenting cool for a clean profile, and allowing plenty of lagering time to smooth and round out those big flavors.
