Subscribed and I'll be hunting squirrels in the backyard for you to shove bottles up their ass. Maybe some chipmunks for 187mL bottles, too.

Isn't there a type of animal that's more fitting of cape, like a bottle shoved up a baconwrappedrhinocowpiggooseturkeychicken smoked to give the bottle that smokey hint.

I thought about the dead animal angle but, thats just too much of a copy-cat tactic. Like i was saying before, I don't think i am even going to bottle this when its done... At least not cap it. I am not sure what the benefit would be.

Ahhh. And on the "smokey hint".... I think I am adding a handful of peated malt to this. I am thinking, if this actually works, I think the peated would certainly be appropriate and a nice touch.

I am thinking maybe a couple of ounces

2 OZ that's it? You should add some dirt from Scotland, it will add an earthy taste. How much Kasier malt is going into this?

I do think a little smoke would be be tasty. I wonder if it would be lost in the mash or the freeze.

You don't want to eff around with peated malt. That stuff is insanely strong and a little bit goes a long long way. I think 2 ounces in a 3-4 gallon batch may even be too much.

... and no way, I don't think you'll lose it at all at any point. You would have to drop a nuke on it to get that peated malt to fade out.

I have some cherry-smoked malt laying around... maybe I'll toss that in there as well just for giggles.

IIIPA is hammering away somethin' fierce. I am going to take a gravity reading Sunday night and if that beer is done (or damn close to it), I'm going to do the first U batch Monday.


(I absolutely freakin' love the fact that PTN hasn't seen any of this yet... still can't find his phone)
