All of my friends home brews I've ever tried never have had any smoke. On my latest brew (Midwest Autumn Amber ale) I get that traditional carbonated "pop", and a really good amount of smoke, and really nice lacing.
Is this not usual? I can't remember the last time I've had a properly carbed homebrew that didn't have the CO2 "smoke" when I popped the cap.
