Anyone had this beer? Kettlehouse is in Missoula; a buddy was down there recently and fell in love with Cold Smoke Scotch Ale. I might make him a 3g batch. Has anyone tried to clone it? Got suggestions on a recipe?

I just started home brewing and would really love the recipe as well, I live near Missoula and in my family if we aren't drinking Cold Smoke, we are drinking Pabst. All or nothing.

That sounds great. I'd love to see a recipe for that. Love that it comes in tall boys.

send them an email - they will prob be VERY helpful

I contacted them a few months back about the olde bong water recipe and the brewer there, Paul, was super helpful. gave me his actual recipe with weights etc (of course had to scale down from 14bbl) and lots of tips on using hemp seeds etc

I'd love to see the recipe for Cold Smoke if you can get it

Sent them an email, here is what I got:
Here's the recipe and generic procedures for a 30bbl batch.... you'll have to scale back the math for your brew size. (1bbl=31gallons)

Grain bill: 1700 #s 2-row, 60 #s 120L, 38 #s Black Malt, 17#s Roasted Barley. Add the grain at a 2.5 water to grain ratio.
Mash in at 148-150 degrees F. Raise temp to 168Degrees after complete conversion.
2 hour boil. 10.5 IBUs at first hopping (10 minutes into the boil). 50 #s brown sugar with 30 minutes remaining. 55.8 oz Goldings at flame out.
Target original gravity: 1.066 Target final gravity: 1.012

Thanks to Paul Roys for the help, I am definitely excited to brew this.

Arise dead post, I've got some good news for you. Sent Kettlehouse an email, here is the response I got:

Thank Paul Roys, Kettlehouse Headbrewer, for the help. So excited to try brewing this myself.

Here's the conversion to a 5 Gallon batch... Let me know if my math is wrong.

9.14# 2 Row
0.322# 120L
0.204# Black Malt
0.091# Roasted Barley

10.5 IBUs @ 110
0.27# Brown Sugar @ 30
0.3 OZ Goldings @ 0

Note this is for a 2 hour boil, so adjust accordingly.

Math looks good, and that is true that it is a two hour boil. On another note, the 10.5 IBUs are supposed to come from CTZ (Columbus/Tomahawk/Zeus), so go with one of those. Here is my conversion for a partial mash recipe with the numbers rounded slightly.

5.4 lb light DME
0.25 lb brown sugar
5.1 oz 120L Crystal malt
3.2 oz Black Malt
1.4 oz Roasted Barley
0.3 oz Golding hops (at flameout)
10.5 IBUs from Columbus/Tomahawk/Zeus

So I love drinking coldsmoke and am a very, very, very inexperienced homebrewer. I'd like to start a batch this weekend but have some questions I'm hoping you all can help me out with.

1. your comment about the 2-hr boil, if I'm going for a 5-gallon batch, how long should I boil it?

2. Are any of these items in the recipe difficult to find?

3. 10.5 IBUs (what/where)?
