Can't see the pics because of the firewall, but I'm super interested in this.

The last brew I made 14 years ago (last until my first AG last month) was a "grab one of everything off the shelf" expiriment. As an afterthought, I threw in a handfull or two of loose leaf lapsang into the boil after the hops. I WISH I had taken notes. Aside from a slight band-aid, which I ascribe to the water quality now, it was a fantastic beer.

I can't describe it or even really remember much about it other than the fabulous piney-smoky-campfire flavor.

You make me want to tackle this again. Might rip off your recipe.

Bottling the Belgian: A Photo Odyssey

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I'm intrigued. I might as well just use my full pound of malt. Afterall I did forget to unclick the "mill all grains" at Brewmasters Warehouse so I have milled peat malt.

Anyhow I'm making a basic base beer malt forward with 12-16oz of peated malt. I'm brewing Friday with WL028 Edinburgh yeast. I have drank Schlenkerla Urbock and seriously enjoyed it with a cigar. Still wish I had some meat to munch on during drinking it though.

Update!

I kegged all of this brew aside from 1 lonely bomber that was had at my Father In-Laws birthday party 1 week ago. I cannot stress enough that this beer neeeeeeds aging if you brew the same recipe. It's very "beer out of an ashtray" when young and uncarbed. The bomber had very minimal carbonation (my fault) but it wasn't bad. It's the color of chocolate soda and has the most intense smoke aroma you will ever encounter. ALL other rauchbiers PALE in comparison to SSB! It's very bitter, but not overpowering. It has a very smooth mouth feel. I had this before dinner and i wish i had a porkchop or steak with it.

What i'd like? More carbonation and a better head. I'll likely fix this once i tap the keg and adjust the co2. I would leave out the liquid smoke entirely for a more sessionable drink.
