So we're calling it Frostbridge. The pilot batch went over really well. Most people around here haven't had the opportunity to try Coldsmoke. Frostbridge came out a little maltier and a little darker, but people loved it; it didn't make it past the weekend.

So now we're trying out our second batch on the 3BBL system. Looks like this one is only coming out @ 6% vs 6.5% in the pilot. Carbing tonight, kegging tomorrow - Just in time for our Friday night event. I'll let you know how the last batch came out.

I just remembered how much I loved this beer when traveling through Missoula and this thread was extremely helpful. I'm going to brew it next Tuesday with the following recipe (pasted from the Brewers Friend calculator). I decided I wanted to try and tone it down in ABV a bit but I want to keep all the flavor if possible, so I'm just cutting back the 2-row from 13 lbs (the correct amount to get 1.066 with my ****ty efficiency) and leaving everything else the same. I still expect that the yeast efficiency will be higher than this calculator says due to the low mash temps and will finish around 1.012, but I'd be happy either way.

Just as an update - the beer turned out extremely super delicious. I ended up getting 70% efficiency instead of 60%, still hit the FG target, so it was closer to 6.5% ABV. I had a party and people destroyed it. A++ would brew again.

I just bought a partial mash Cold Smoke clone kit from Austin Homebrew and the ingredients are very close to what's listed above. They didn't include brown sugar, but I'm going to toss some in. Brewing it tomorrow. I've got high hopes... I'm originally from MT and went to college in Missoula. Cold Smoke is one of my favorites but I can't get it in SD.
