Sounds awesome. I've been experimenting with wood and smoke in beer and this fits right in. Once I get hold of enough peated malt to get going on this I'll report back how it turns out.

Thanks and cheers

Looking forward to it. I'm curious how this works out for others.

I brewed a half batch of smoked porter with 4oz of peated malt (this was mistakenly double what the recipe called for) and it was way over the top smoke for what I wanted. I can't imagine what 100% peated malt tasted like. I don't think I'll be brewing one myself but would love to try a bottle if anyone near me ever brewed one. I don't drink scotch so I cant compare tastes there.

I think this falls into the 'never the twain shall meet'. I can't wrap my head around making a 'smoked' porter, and finding that 4 oz was over the top. I don't think I could even taste 4 oz. My latest Imperial Stout had 2 lbs of peated malt and was moderate in the peat.

I'm with you. My barleywine had two pounds and I can taste it but it's not intense to me. When I hand it to others they go "wow that's smokey". I can taste the peat but not the smoke as much. I am a cigar smoker though so my perception of smoke is different.

I am curious if either of you consider stone smoked porter to have any smoke flavor at all. The beer I was going for was a clone of that. What I ended up making tasted like an ashtray compared to stone's version. To me, stone smoked porter has a definite smoke flavor but it's not overpowering. So to you guys it must just taste like a smokeless porter?

As a matter of fact using that as a reference beer I had a hard time finding smoke flavor in the beer the one and only time I bought Stone Smoked Porter. Due to not really being able to taste the smoke I never bought it again.

I think you might be confusing peat smoked with a smoked base malt like weyermans. There is no way in hell you can use pounds of peat.
