I think a Peated Malt SMaSH is one of the least likely things I would ever see. Great job jumping on this. I'm truly impressed, and I'd love to try it myself.

If you want to take the chance that a keg filed bottle might be a touch flat, I'd be happy to send you one - drop me a line. Also, any suggestions how to fill a bottle that is from a force keg carbonated would be great. Do I just drop my dispensing pressure and fill 'er up?

That's very nice of you to offer. But I think I'll just try this myself. Thanks again.

BTW, did you ever take a pic of your beer? Love to see what it looks like.

Alchemist - where in Oregon are you? I'm just getting into brewing beer - been doing mead for several years now - and am starting off with a Sierra Nevada Porter clone.

This sounds AMAZING. I am a scotch lover and think that once I graduate to all-grain brewing, I would love to try your recipe. I have several scotch enthusiast/beer drinking friends that would probably love a peaty ale.

Sounds amazing and thanks for the wonderful idea and for sharing!

Aaron

I'm in Eugene. And doing a Bourbon Imperial Stout today, even as I type this.

I'm thrilled to hear you think this is amazing? It's even better than it sounds

It's a great all-grain recipe to try. Good luck and feel free to ask questions if you have them.

Could you help an extract brewer out with this one....????? I love scotch and have been thinking about something like this for a while. Anyone ever add scotch to their brew, like in a bourbon barrel stout?

It'll be tough to do something like this with extract only. You'd have to do a partial mash because there's no one out there that makes extract with peated malt. You'll have to at a minimum do a partial mash with about half your fermentables being peated malt.

I've added scotch to my ale before...but sadly (in this context) it does not even step into the same room as the peated ale.

I really can't come up with anything that would let an extract brewer try this. It's simply based too strongly on the peated malt. A partial mash is all I can come up with, and I think that would be both very costly and much less effective.

Or you could try peating/smoking your malt extract, but I have serious doubts about that working.

Maybe it's time for trying a small 1-2 gal all grain batch???

Honestly, thanks for the input guys! I'm not ready to go all grain and don't really have the time to try out a small all grain batch. I'd seriously be willing to give the partial a shot if you'd be willing to share even if the cost would be high! Thanks so much! This beer/style is very intriguing to me!
