I made a 2.5gal batch of Smoked Porter. I used the BYO Stone Smoked Porter clone recipe and scaled it in beersmith. The original recipe calls for 1oz of "lightly peated" malt. Well, when I scaled it from 5 gallons to 2.5 gallons (or maybe i typed it wrong to begin with) beersmith converted that to 2oz. Of course my LHBS doesnt have lightly peated malt, only peated malt.
So now I've got a half size beer with twice as much peated malt as the full recipe calls for!!! I've never brewed with peated malt before but it's strong stuff from what i've read. It just went in the fermenter yesterday and I didn't taste the hydro sample before pitching (ooops). Just curious how you guys think this will end up.
I love me a smokey beer for sure but am not a fan of liquid cigarettes.
