You could sub Crystal 120 instead. That is a fairly common grain to find.

I am somewhat of a dilettante in the the brewing game, but has anyone ever put the wood chips in the boil to extract the smokiness? Would it work? Is is safe to do it that way (just thinking it would extract something unwanted)? Thanks for any facts and opinions!

All that I can think of is tannin extracts......when boiling wood.....but, there's a really good chance I'm way off on that.

I second that. If you want natural smoke, throw some large stones in a fire for a bit, then toss them in the boil. Or u could cheat and add a bit of liquid smoke at bottling.

What about mashing it out? Such as performing the same method as you wood (pun intended) with extracting the fermentables from the grains, and making sure you do not go over the 170 degree mark so you do not extract the tannins. From my understanding, I believe you would extract tannins from the grains if you go over that temp right?

Just a thought, and thanks

Didn't get the notification of the reply on thisn'. I think you should definitely try it! It's a good theory for sure and one that makes sense.

Finally gathered all the ingredients to make this batch, and am excited to see how this comes out. From the experiences people posted on here, I am expecting a great beer. My efficiency did not come out well, I ended up around 1.070+, so I decided to add some cane sugar to raise the OG to the specified expected OG. Thanks for the recipe!

Maybe next time I will experiment with a small batch to see if I can acquire the smokiness via mash out, and thanks for tip guys

Those of you that have successfully made this recipe, I was wondering if you used 4oz of oak woodchips as a wet or dry measurement?
