Hasnt totally cleared because only a couple days into lagering but I couldnt resist. Thanks passedpawn and others that helped. This brew is simply fantastic. Nice upfront smoke and definately hints of bacon or smoked meats. I think the cherry wood is the main magicmaker here. Flavorwise one of the best beers Ive ever brewed.

Here we go! Wow what a change after proper lagering, this thing just gets better and better. Great depth from the smoke and nice hop balance. Theres no light behind it so hard to tell but it is quite clear.

Brewed the Cherry Beech Smoke Beer this past Saturday for the Big Brew Day. First time brewing outside. Went very well - overshot my gravity by a few points. Carted the carboy home and pitched my WLP820 2 liter starter. Took 24 hours for visible activity, but she's going nicely now at 52ºF.

I changed the bittering hops to 1/2 oz Newport and used 3 lbs of the beechwood smoked malt.
