Default looking for smoked extract recipes

Does anyone have an extract recipe for any kind of smoked beer?
l am thinking something light but plenty of smoke flavor?
I think the all grain recipes would call for about 30% of the grain bill.
Would that be possible for an partial mash?

I would definately consider a PM. I have not tried a beer that used that weird smoke flavored extract, and I don't plan to. Something about smoke extract sounds very wrong to me. I would plan a PM and smoke all of the lighter grains yourself. If that is not an option I would substitute a portion of smoked malt. However, I always smoke my own so I can't give you advise on how to use the commercial stuff.

Good luck, I love Rauchbier

Just a quicky...You actually smoke your grain or just a slow long roast

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

The next Jamil Show podcast will be on classic Rauchbiers. There's an older episode on Other Smoked Beers. I'm sure that the new one will have loads of good information on how to approach this from an extract perspective (which I think means you'll have to PM - but relax, it's easy)

NOW BACK TO YOUR REGULAR SCHEDULED POSTWHORING.....

I actually smoke them. It is very easy to do, and IMHO returns a much better product. Plus you can accurately control the amount and type of smoke flavor. For example, my Smokey Boggart Porter uses a half and half mix of apple wood and hickory for the smoke flavor I am looking for.

Here is a pic of my setup: Nothing fancy....


Check out this article for more info.

Hey, that's the smoker I'm looking at! It works well for smoking malt, eh?

Aren't you dressed a little "fancy" for smoking malt?

I do DME and steep grains.

I made just a general run of the mill light ale and added 1/4 tsp of liquid smoke in each 5 liter minikeg. I filled 4 kegs, but only smoked 2 of them.

I don't know how soon it was ready, but I tapped my first minikeg at 6 months and it was lightly smoked and very tasty.

I worked in Bamberg for 5 years and have been to the Schlenklera dozens and dozens of times, but my version was a really light smoke flavor nothing like the Aechte Rauchbier (Genuine Smoke Beer).

That's just how I roll.

Yes that smoker is awesome!!! It is my brothers and we use it for smoking everything. What you see right there is about 18lbs. of malt getting smoked. I just use an old screen bent into a basket. Turn the grains every 5 or so minutes and you are golden. I also keep a spray bottle filled with water and mist down the grain while turning.

Give it a shot, it works great!
