Default Rauchbier

This is an upcoming brew i am planning on doing in May.
Looking for input on this recipe.


As i understand it Hops will conflict with the smoke flavor so i am minimizing it to 1 addition. I am guessing as to my efficiency, as that i have not brewed a partial mash yet, the beer i am brewing prior to this one will be a partial mash and i will have more data to work with then. I have erred on on the side of caution.

What type of smoked malt? If cherry or beechwood (rauch), you might want to increase it. If Peat, you have way too much.

careful with your efficiency - i'm like you, i assume the worst, but 60% is super low. you can hit that just steeping grains. make sure you measure your pre-boil gravity (and post obviously) and adjust at the end because i'd bet money you'll get a higher efficiency than what you're predicting. the worst case scenario is you get more beer.

i did a special b experiment the other day after work and just partially steeped grains (i mashed in/out) but only by burner control and not strike water temps and hit 65% which i thought was pretty good for a lazy brew.

How will the hops conflict? you have the proper amount of bittering hops based on what I read in classic styles.

Using Briess Smoked Malt which is Cherry wood smoked, I can reverse the Pale malt and Smoked Malt amounts.

According to Briess; "10-20% - Pronounced smoke character in lighter styles like Scottish Ales and Oktoberfests"

I would like to get close to the bamberg Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer , which i know uses 100% smoked malt. I know i cant get there with a Partial mash. But i would like to get as close as possible.


Regarding the Hops, From what i understand with Rauchbier Flavor and Aroma hops are not a pleasant contrast with the Smoke Flavor. Hence the single boil addition. If there is a good balance hops/smoke, i would like to know
