Need some help making additions to a True Brew German Dark Lager kit. The included ingredients are:
Muntons Hopped Dark Malt Extract, 3.3lb
Muntons Dark Dried Malt Extract, 2lb
Muntons Crushed Crystal Malt, .38lb
Hop Pellets, UK First Gold(7%),1oz
Fermentis S-23 Lager Yeast, 11.5g
I'd like to add notes of smoke and oak, but don't have the equipment to just smoke the chips and put them in the secondary. Would 3 oz of peat-smoked malt steeped with the crystal impart a noticeable smoke flavor? I'd also like to add 8 oz of oak chips to the secondary. Couldn't find any similar recipes while searching the boards, anyone have suggestions for making this happen?
