Alder, mostly. I may throw a few big chunks of hickory in as well, but I don't want that to take over.

My friends and I go camping every year for dove season, and this seems like a great campfire beer so i'll give it a go. What's the fermenation temp?

Since Dude doesn't make regular appearances around here any more, I'll venture a guess. Try fermenting around 60-65°F.

For that particular yeast. You could substitute any regular ale yeast or even Nottingham dry for this recipe. Fermenting in the mid-60's is optimum for most of these yeasts.

Mid-60s is a pretty good fermentation temp for pretty much any ale. I'm working out a recipe today for a smoked porter, and I'm really concerned about keeping temps at the low end of the yeast's range, since fruity esters don't seem like they'd be terribly complementary to the smoke.

It turned out great. Thank you for posting the recipe.

I did change the smoke wood to mesquite though, and the flavor came out pretty heavy. I'd recommend smoking a little less if using a strong wood like mesquite.
