As for the sour milk. Another urban...

I think you will be surprised that there will not be a huge difference with 10% of the 40 ppm. Once you hit these levels, different things happen to the taste profile that is not exactly linear.

When I originally did this I could not find any data on peated malt, as to whether it was unmodified or not, so I figured better safe than sorry. And I really like decoction mashes.

Yes, it was quite pricey. But it does not hold a candle to the $8/22 oz bottle cost :)

I did not secondary this at all since I kegged.

Fastenove, I didn't use rice hulls on this, being 100% barley. Same thought you had. I think you mash and brew will be fine and by no means ruined. Maybe a little more attenuated but that would...

I'm curious - why the decision to go 50/50?

BTW, the mash schedule I give really gives a good attenuated ale. Actually, the toasting of 2 lbs was a direct result of how much it attenuated the...

It does have a touch of smoke flavor, but mostly I find it very low, and if my tastes are just slightly off, I can't taste it at all.

So given I DID use...
