Default Stone Smoked Porter--Need help!

Man, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this beer.....SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good.

So, it's time to formulate a clone. I've done a bit of preliminary googleing and surprisingly have come up empty handed.

When I was at the brewery they basically told us the percentages but I can't remember now! I know it was 2row, crystal, and peat smoked malt.

Their website gives this info:

Hop Variety:
Chinook & Mt. Hood

Stats:
5.9%, 53IBUs

So I'm thinking something like:

12lb 2row (or Pale Ale Malt since I've got A LOT)
1lb C60
1lb Peat Smoked Malt

1oz Galena 60min
.75oz Hallertau 30min
.5oz Hallertau 15min

This is just a rough stab at it....what do you guys think/have any of you seen any clones for this beer?

Thanks!!!

You're gonna need something roasty in there. Peat smoked malt doesn't add much color, just a really rough, smoky flavor. Also, are you sure it's peated malt, or is it some other form of rauch malt?

No I'm sure it's peated malt...at least thats what they told us on the tour.

You're right though, I totally forgot about the chocolate malt!

If you want to ever drink that beer, I would suggest not putting 1lb of peat malt in there.

The website cites peat smoked malt as the source of smoke flavor. The beer is 5.9% ABV with 53 IBUs. I think you'll need a touch of black patent or roasted barley in the mix along with the chocolate. Go easy on that peat stuff.

You missed completely for the hops!!!!(from your own notes, but your subs should be fine lol)

So it is not barrell aged? for some reason I thought it was.

I would be tempted to smoke my own grains, but that is just me!

Believe it or not, but smoked items lose their "freshness" quickly. Fresh smoked is best.

They use Simcoe for the first hop addition. You can see it happen here.

I tweaked a BYO recipe to make a smoked porter that was inspired by Stone's.

I really enjoyed the beer, here is what I pulled together for the recipe. Guess I'll have to tweak it next time to get Simcoe in there!

75 Minute boil, 5.25 gal

13.15# Maris Otter
1.4# Crystal 80l
0.75# Chocolate
.5# Peat smoked
.5# Oats flaked

1.55 oz Columbus @ 75min
0.75 oz Columbus @ 10min
1.3 oz Columbus @ 0min

Yeast: Wyeast 1187 Ringwood Ale

OG: 1.078
FG: 1.018

14 days in the fermenter due to the birth of my first born then straight to the keg.

Next time I think I may up the peat smoked malt and I was really pleased with the Ringwood yeast! The beer turned out nice and smoky and had a very nice hop to it great mouth feel also happened to be my 1st all grain brew.

It's peat, but it ain't a pound, and I HIGHLY doubt it's a half pound. Start with MAYBE four ounces.
