Default Smoked IPA

Has anyone ever tried one, or done one?

This is my next project recipe. I'm thinking about using DesertBrews Chaos IPA base, but subbing some of the base malt with home smoked malt.

Any input would be appreciated.

Are you thinking full-on eating burning logs smokey, or "hmm, what's that smokeyness I taste?" smokey?

I'm thinking definitely noticeable. Right now I'm thinking about 5lbs of smoked malt. Maybe more?

I used that as a basis for how I want the smokiness. The smoked porter I did had 5 lbs and I wanted it even more smokey.

What kind of hops are you thinking then? You wouldn't want any fruity/citrusyness, eh? I'd think you'll be heading to in the direction of nobles?

Big and bitter, with full smoke. I would say 5 pounds is a good place to tart, but I really can't say without other info. What will the OG be, IBUs?

I want a classic IPA base. I love the looks of DB's Chaos IPA, so I'm going to go with that. I will probably sub the Nugget for what I have here, but I have lots of choices. Prolly warrior.

Here is the Chaos IPA recipe.

You may want to up the smoke right off the bat. If your porter was not smokey enough and it had a bunch of roasted grains in it, it sounds like you'll need more. I know roasted grains aren't smokey, but you'll lose their toasty dryness and you'll want to make up for it. Or do you think that it may go the other way? The smoked malt has no roast to hide behind in an IPA...

Exactly what I was thinking.

I'm half tempted to do the entire base malt as smoked malt. That be 11 pounds, LOL.

Well I know I would like it. <cue 99> That's how they do it in Bamberg.

Calling Pumbaa....tell me about the smoked pale ale in your sig....

I'm leaning towards doing a 50/50 mix of base pale malt and smoked malt. I think the smoke will come through well enough.

SwAMi gave me some alder wood before he left, now I'm keeping an eye out for the sales on smokers as the grilling season winds down....if anyone sees an add anywhere online, please let me know about it.

I can't wait to do this.
