I made this again a few weeks ago and think it is pretty spot on in taste. My mouth feel was a little thin but had issues with my mash temps and ended up mashing around 147 instead of 150. The peat is present but not over powering. Could maybe drop to .03 lbs to better match the original but I like it slightly more peaty.

My final recipe was.

Thanks Beernip! I will try this sometime soon. Any tips for a relatively new brewer trying to make this?

Pretty easy fermentation on this one. Just keep it in the mid 60's and make a starter. Without a starter I can usually only make it down to 1.017-8. This yeast is a beast in the proper amounts. Had it pull a IIPA (1.092) down to 1.012 using the cake from the last batch.
