Just looking for some input regarding the grain bill on this recipe. Not sure if I'm using enough Smoked malt to get the smoke flavor. I am not looking for a terribly intense flavor, just something to add a new flavor I guess.
I would also appreciate some input as to what hops I should use. I have Cascade, Aramis, Columbus, Summit and Chinook on hand.
On to the grain bill.
10 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM) Grain 1 64.5 %
3 lbs Rye Malt (4.7 SRM) Grain 2 19.4 %
2 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 3 12.9 %
8.0 oz Smoked Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 4 3.2 %
For the hops, I was thinking maybe 1 OZ of chinook or summit at 60Min then 2 OZ of Aramis at 5 then another 2 OZ of Aramis at flameout. I am looking for a decent hop flavor without overpower the smoked malt. I am not sure how loading up on hops at the end will affect the smoke flavor. I can up the smoked malt to a full pound if that would help balance the hop flavor.
