What is your goal? The combination of heavy peated malt, and American aroma hops doesn't sound appealing to me. I'd lower the peated and do something maltier, or drop the peated and do something hoppier.

I would like to try the peated malt. I'm a big fan of islay scotch. Any recipe suggestions involving the peated malt?

Its potency is variable, but I'd start with closer to half a pound. For me, the flavor works best in a strong/dark beer, I did a batch based on Hair of the Dog's Adam that was excellent: http://www.themadfermentationist.com...dam-clone.html

Peated malt is some strong and polarizing stuff. I brewed a peated porter on cherries that was fantastic, if tailored to a fairly narrow audience. I agree with Mike's skepticism about peat+cascade; that sounds awful. If you add peat, then the hops probably are used for mild bittering and nothing more. Some maltiness helps keep the peat from getting out of control.
