  • Posted in thread: Amount suggestions for Briess Cherrywood Smoked Malt? on 10-08-2013 at 12:49 PM
    I've used this malt for up to 55% of the grain bill. The result was a nice smokey beer that has
    received many compliments. Next time, I'll use it for 100% of the base malt (the recipe also
    contains mu...

    with something...

    I BIAB for small stovetop batches (2.5 gal), but for larger (5 gal) batches, I do a combo

    mash in the 15 (wi...

    I used WLP005 last year for a 11.5% English Barleywine. Pitched twice. This year, I'm doing an

    1728, and...
