Default Mason's Smoked Porter


Size: 5.5 gallons
OG: 1.065
FG: 1.016
ABV: 6.4%
IBU: 36
Color: 38 SRM

11.0 lbs US 2-row malt
1.75 lbs Chocolate malt 350L
0.75 lbs Crystal malt 60L
0.25 lbs Black malt
3.0 oz peated malt

0.75 oz Columbus (14.0%) @ 60
0.50 oz Willamette (4.5%) @ 10

Safale US-05 yeast (I pitched onto a prior cake)

Mash at 154F for 60 mins. Boil 60 mins.


This recipe was formulated by a friend who based it on the Stone Brewing Co Smoked Porter recipe published in BYO Magazine in the December 2008 issue.
I then tweaked it further, and this is what I came up with. This beer is very, very good. Creamy, chocolatey, with subtle but noticable smoke. Thanks to the black malt, the flavor is more like semi-sweet chocolate than milk chocolate. Oh so tasty, enjoy!

Note: You need to be careful with peat malt, it can be very overpowering if you use too much. I wouldn't use more than 4 oz in a 5 gal batch. You can substitute rauchmalt, but you will need to use more, prob close to double [edit: Double is not enough. You will need to use several lbs in place of some base malt] for the same level of smoke. This beer should also work well with an English yeast, like Safale S-04 or Wyeast 1098, which is what my friend uses.

Sounds good. The maris otter should give it a little more character. I'll prob use german rauchmalt and S-04 next time too, just to see the difference. I'm sure it will turn out great. Good luck.

Posted out in Recipe forums.


Got reply:
You'll not get any smoke character with 8 oz, I'm afraid.
Should you replace the Maris Otter with Rauchmalt, then we're getting somewhere.

Briess makes a smoked malt now that is somewhere in between Weyermann Rauch and Peat as far as smokiness. I agree that 8oz of rauch is like waving a smoky stick at the boil kettle. My last smoked porter used 5 pounds of it that's just about right. You need about 2 pounds before it's detectable.

might up it by a pound go to 4lbs.
Don't want a smokey kick in the head, but do want the smoke in there. stone is a nice balance.

I didn't realize that rauschmalt was so much less smokey than peat. Looks like to substitute for the peat in this recipe, you would just omit the peat, and use rausch in place of some of the 2 row, maybe half of it or more.

4lbs of rauchmalt gave a good amount of smoke flavor.
bottled and aging as we speak... Mine's a big imperial porter so it's taking some time to carbonate.

tasted great at bottling! looking forward to this one, might need to "check one" tonight.
