Well, bottled last night and at least at this point I can say definitely detectable, and my buddy agreed with me. It's a very faint flavor that I think is just perfect...not overpowering, but you don't have to hunt too hard for it. So, at least in an amber ale, 1/2oz is detectable. Really makes me wonder about those recipes that call for 3oz or more, but I suppose those are generally darker, maltier beers that would overpower 1/2oz.

Thanks for the input, BeeGee!

I'll be using it in a pretty malty scottish 80/-, so an oz or two might be what I am looking for.

I've got a 1/2oz left if you want it! I bet the guy at AHBS was pretty pissed about packing 1oz of peated malt, but hey, they gave me the option...

Since the stuff is cheap (AB carries it now for less than $2.00/lb), I'll probably just pick up a full pound and vacuum seal what I don't use. I plan to have my scottish ale be one of my staples, so the pound of grain will get used up.

I've got 12 oz of beechwood smoked malt that I don't plan to ever use, though. I'll probably end up tossing it.

I'd be happy to send it to you, but... would it be worth the shipping costs? I have no idea how much it would cost to ship a 3/4lb package to you up there.

We can discuss via PM, but if you really want some rauch malt and can't get it easily, I could send a FEW pounds to you if you cover the shipping charges.

The customs would kill him (unless the Chairman has a PO box in Montana).
