Default Alaskan Smoked Porter Extract Recipe?

Hey, I'm pretty new to brewing and am looking to make a beer similar to Alaskan Smoked Porter, but cannot find an extract version of the recipe. I've found several all-grain and partial mash clones, but am not sure how to convert those recipes into an extract brew or if that is even possible? In the all-grain recipes it calls for 2 Lbs of alder-smoked malt... Could that be steeped or does that type of grain have to be mashed? Thanks to anyone for the help!

Default Smoked Porter

My LHB store had a smoked porter kit, which turned out awesome. Not sure what would make it an Alsakan Smoked Porter. I will look up my paperwork and find out what exactly it was.

Hey "Oldschool", it would be great if you could post that Alaskan Smoked Porter Extract clone if it is is BYO. I've found a lot of All-grain clones for it, but no extract ones. It would be much appreciated.

Also, I think a key ingredient in the Alaskan Smoked Porter is Alderwood-smoked Malt... I've read that folsombrewmeister used to have it, but do not anymore. Does anyone know where to get this? And if so, would it need to be mashed or could it be steeped like a specialty grain? Thanks for your patience!

Yep, you are correct the key is the alder wood smoked malt. It says to smoke it yourself.

wyeast 1968(london ESB) or WLP002 (english ale)

.75 cup corn sugar for priming

step by step
smoke 1lb of the munich with alder wood
heat 4.7qts water to 165 steep crushed grains at 154 for 45 mins. Rinse with 3.5qts at 170. Add dried malt extract to make 2.5 gallons of wort. Boil for 60 minutes adding hops at times indicated and liquid malt extract with 15 minutes remaining. Cool wort and transfer to fermenter and add water to make 5 gallons. Aerate wort, pitch yeast and ferment at 68. thanks to kristi monroe and curtis holms from Alaskan Brewing for their assistance in making this clone.
