It may be a miss, and I am sure I will know about 2 hours from now if it is.
Thanks for the heads up though!
It's not so much the smoke, but the particular aroma/flavor of peat smoked malt - can be rather "medicinal". Nothing wrong with using 2 lbs (or more) of non-peat-smoked malt (like weyermann rauschmalt) if you want a smoked beer. Perhaps this will be fine - I have never tried using this much peat smoked malt, so I can't really say anything from personal experience...just from everything I've read about it. Cheers
