I'd like to get a little more body and mouthfeel into this porter. I think it would go well with the smokey flavour, which is just right. I was thinking of adding a pound or two of carastan 30-37 or maybe crystal 60. Thoughts on that or other suggestions?

I'd also like to get a bit creamier head on it. Is this something that could come with the crystal?

thanks!

Some flaked rye is a good addition for body without sweetness. I jut did a smoked Baltic porter with 1 lb of flaked rye that I'm really enjoying. Otherwise it looks like a good recipe.

Flaked rye sounds interesting. However i don't have any on hand and probably can't get some for a few months.

I do have flaked oats, flaked wheat and flaked corn. Would any of these achieve the same result?

Id probably go for the flaked oats. It will add some nice body and mouthfeel similar to an oatmeal stout. I think it would be awesome in this recipe!
