Not quite there yet. I need to bump up the molasses and add a touch more patent or maybe some roasted barley.

Next batch should be close to the bullseye.

Have you ever played around with smoked malt? I'm working on a smoked porter for my next batch, small amount of peat-smoked malt (prolly 2oz). The best beer I've had in ages is Stone Smoked Porter, that beer singlehandely reminds me that YES - I LOVE PORTERS!

I used smoked malt in my 80/- Scottish Ale.

That's probably the next brew after the pale ale I'm brewing tomrrow.

You ever play around with it in any of the porters? Wondering if a tiny amount (like, an ounce of peat) might give you a little extra smokiness/roastiness rather than bumping up the black patent.

One thing... the peat smoked malt might not be the smoked malt you are looking for. That's going to give it a distinct Scotch whisky taste. Rauchmalt might be more appropriate, but you have to use a LOT more than a couple oz to make it shine through.

Just my $0.02

From what I've read, Stone uses peat-smoked malt. Because of what I want to do with the rest of the recipe and because my mash tun is now on the small side (5 gallon cooler), I'd rather use the more concentrated peat than regular smoked malt.

One thought I have down the road is to do a smoked IPA like Dude, but smoke them with some hops.
