I smoked a few lbs of 2-row by soaking the grains in distilled water for 20 min, then spreading over a stainless screen placed in the smoker, thickness was about .25 to .5 inch layer, the grain was smoked at 225F. for 2 hours using white oak and just a touch of mesquite added in the last 15 minutes. the flavor is quite unique and is the big contributor to the "camping in a pint" comments.

My efficency has been in the mid 80's lately and the last batch came in at 1.072 and finished at the usual 1.016 netting 7.42%ABV

Overall opinion of this one is that the rye comes through nicely up front adding to a beautiful mouthfeel, the smoke flavor and aroma almost dominate the beer yet nice hoppy bitterness is noted, the FWH smoothes the bitterness into the flavor additions quite well.


This beer has taken 1st place in the monthly homebrew club meeting tastings on 2 seperate occasions, and is one of my most requested beers from friends.

Ever since having New Glarus' Smoked Rye I've been looking for a recipe I can brew.... This, sir, appears to be it. Thank you much!

Let me know what you think of it, I need to brew this one more often, I love it!

I've been toying with a very similar recipe, im looking to make it for a local homebrew competition coming up in October. It was a secret ingredient competition where they released the ingredient last month, 2lbs of CherryWood Smoked Rye.

I may just use a modified version o your recipe, I need to figure out how to balance the rye and the smoke.

Brewing this up today, only change I made was adjusting for my AA% hops and I didn't have Magnum so I went with Northern Brewer for the same total IBU.

As long as the IBU is adjusted you shouldn't have an issue.

I have used Northern in a couple beers with good results, I hope you enjoy this beer as much as I do!

OG of 1.071, I also subbed in S-05 for the yeast as I didn't get to the supply store in time for anything else and had that on hand. Looking forward to tasting it! :mug:
