Tell Me, How My A.S.S. Taste? (American Smoked Stout)
 
GRAIN:
8.00# Marris Otter
5.00# Rauchmalt
0.75# Crystal 60L
0.75# Crystal 40L
0.75# Chocolate malt
0.50# Roasted barley

HOPS:
2.50 ounces Northern Brewer (8.0% AA), 60 minutes

MASH:
Single infusion; 60 minutes @ 154

Recipe is based on 71% efficiency.

Recipe took a few weeks to mellow out in the keg post-fermentation. A little harsh/aggressive at first (hops and roast). 6-8 weeks in, developed a smooth, chewy, smokey, roasty, balanced character that was very well received even by several who are *not* necessarily fans of smoked beers.

EDIT: I should say, this is definately a *smoked* beer. I find it quite balanced for my tastes (and it was well-received), but someone seeking a beer that's more stout-first, smoked-second could easily sub out a pound, pound and a half of the rauchmalt for more base malt.

I so want some of bird's A.S.S. I want it real bad.

Thanks for sharing the recipe- I am putting this on my list to brew.

I enjoyed it, and I'm not a real big fan of smoked beers.

Would adding 5-6 jalapenos to the primary ruin this beer or would the spice, in your opinion, liven it upa bit?

I'd tap that A.S.S.

I wouldn't do primary. Roast, skin and dice some jalapenos would be much nicer. Roast em over charcoal and it'll be ever better. Hell, dry-hop that thing with dried chipotle!

Mmmmmmm smoke..:mug:

This sounds incredible - big rauschbeer fan. I'm only starting a couple of brews right now (newbie) but I think this might be number 3 on my list after some help from my LHBS.
