Do you like Black IPA’s or Baltic Porter styles? Our new William’s Baltic Black™ Malt Extract has been formulated with Debittered Black Wheat Malt, Melanoidin Malt, Vienna, and Pilsner malt, for the color and body of a stout style without the roast, bitter aftertaste. As usual, William’s Malt Extracts are concentrated at the lowest possible temperature, for an aromatic, just mashed character. Try this today for an authentic Baltic Porter or Black IPA style beer without mashing!

To use this to make a Black IPA, just take your favorite IPA extract recipe and substitute this malt pound for pound. You might want to cut back on the initial bittering hop addition by 10% or so, as a Black IPA usually works best with a bit less pure bittering than a lighter IPA.

For a Baltic Porter, try this:

Baltic Porter (for 5 gallons)
9 lbs. Baltic Black Malt Extract
1½ oz. Willamette Pellets (add at start of 1 hour boil)
no finishing hops
2124 Wyeast Bohemian Lager Yeast
4½ ounces Corn Sugar for carbonation or keg and carbonate

Brewing Notes: Starting gravity around 1.068, finishes at around 1.016 
Ferment cool, ideally at 65°-68° F.

Grain Bill for William's Baltic Black™
62% Belgian Pilsner Malt
25% Belgian Munich Malt
5% Belgian Black Wheat Malt
7% Melanoidin Malt
1% Belgian Special B Malt

Approximate SRM color value of 6 pounds of extract dissolved into 5 gallons of water before boiling: 28

Exceptional result
Had a friend bring a bag back to Australia; 1.070 OG 1.014 FG, Centennial and Idaho 7 flameout addition to 50 IBU or so, Fermentis S23 yeast 12C for 3 days then free rise to 18C for 20 days. Chocolate liqueur, dried fruit and bitter orange. Clear like a welder's mask. I'll be doing this again asap.

Black IPA
Don't be fooled by the name, this extract makes a great Black IPA. Followed Williams advice and reduced the boil IBU's by 10%. Still over 100 IBU's total. We used our IPA recipe with a Cascade/Citra combo  that we do and Steeped 1# crystal plus 9.3 pounds of extract (5 gal.). We did not do our usual dry hop addition. Very Nice. Plan to try this with a Dark Belgian. Been brewing well over 20 years. Quality extract is a must, great job Williams.
