Please send me a bottle. I have used 4 oz of peated malt in a 12 gallon batch of 80/- and it lent a distinct peated and vegetal tone but it was not something that was terribly pleasant. Found that the split of people who liked that note was 100% down the "scotch drinker" line and those who were not scotch fans were put off by just that small amount of peat.

I too cannot even imagine a 100% peat malt beer.

I could oblige with a 2lbs in a recipe. In the recipe it came out to 10% which I think many would find as way too much. I just need to make sure they're carbonated. I had opened one last night that was not carbonated.

Any thought about brewing this with corn to thin out the body and then freeze distilling?

In a word, no. I actually increased the grain bill, made my own specialty malts and shortened the early rests to increase body. Corn - ick in my world. I can't imagine ever brewing with corn.

Someone else suggested freeze concentrating this also. I don't see the point really. Can someone enlighten me?

If you partially freeze the beer and pull out the ice it increase the alcohol content. Called an eis beer, the Germans are know to do this. I suggested it so the final product comes out more like a Scotch liquor with a much higher alcohol content than the original product.

@Steelers - Noted. Same real answer. I personally have no desire to do make this any higher in alcohol or scotch like. Scotch is way more than just high alcohol and the goal here was a quaffable peated ale.

I brewed a slightly altered version of this and it came out werry vell If you enjoy Laphroaig, I wouldent hesitate to brew this one !
I used lightly peated malt, next time I will use 10% heavy peated malt !
Ill just flash my label also
For you non danes, it translates something like:

PeatHag
bog wife's brew

Brewed on Peat, bog water and stale herbs.
drink it only if you have the strength for it.

OMG, that totally rocks DangMan!!!

I have my own update on this year's batch(es). I brewed two after my first one, believe it or not, was not peaty enough for me. I used Simpson peated malt. After determining something was up (too mild) I found via research that Simpson's is a low phenol (5-10 ppm phenol) peated malt. Why it was good in previous batches, I just don't know. Regardless, I then hunted down Baird's Heavy peated distilling malt at 35-45 ppm phenol.

The resulting brew was much more what I wanted.

Now here is something interesting I found. After kegging, the the subsequent FG measurement tasting, I gave a token rinse to my hydrometer cylinder and took a sip....the that strong, ashy flavor that so many people note was there, in spades. I hold that something about having SO MUCH peated malt in the brew changes it's character in such a way that it's actually more approachable and balanced.

Have you made a 100% 40 ppm beer That is realy hard core

My PeatHag is made with 100% 5ppm peated malt. But I am experimenting with more smoke, so I have bought some 40ppm malt, and I am planning on using
90% 5ppm and
10% 40 ppm next time !
Other things im trying to do is using Columbus hops and lovering the abv to around 6 !
