I was being extreme for effect Still, I'd probably mash no warmer than 154F, probably closer to 152 given the character malts (yes, cara and flaked barley)... you don't want syrup.

And I just realized you have 20% smoked malt... whew! I'd back off of that a bit, down to 10% or less. Just a preference thing

I agree, that's quite a bit of smoked malt.

To answer your question, I'd say 153F-154F just like tre9er said.

20% Breiss smoked malt is definitely not too much for a rauchbier. I recently brewed a german lager using 20% Breiss smoked and it came out perfect. Depending on the environment, it sometimes seemed subtle, other times bold. Compared very closely to Schlenkerla, which was exactly my goal.

Stick between 152-154 degrees. With that malt bill that should give you a nice medium to high medium body.
