I am looking to do my second BIAB. I bought some cherry wood smoked briess when I was at the hbs in MN since we were in town for a football game, and since my brother in law and I thought it smelled terrific. Now I am not sure what to make with it. For the record I am not a huge hop head...I have the following on hand


21 lbs marris otter
8 lbs 2 row
8 lbs cherry wood smoked briess
8 lbs white wheat

and smack pack of american wheat yeast

2 oz willamette hops
2 oz cascade hops
1 oz nugget hops

I am not opposed to buying a few additional things from the lhbs, but their selection isn't the best in the world...ideas?

I made a beer with that cherrywood as soon as it was available. My recipe pulldown has the recipe and pics. Good luck. With the ingredients you have there, you can't go wrong.

I just transferred a smoked porter/stout over to the secondary that I had 5 lbs of cherry wood smoked malts in. DAMN. I hope it's not too early to tell, but it's outstanding! Nutty chocolate, roasted earthy notes, and a nice balance of smoke.

3.00 lb Light Dry Extract (8.0 SRM) Dry Extract 28.57 %
5.00 lb Smoked Malt (5.0 SRM) Grain 47.62 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 9.52 %
1.00 lb Chocolate Malt (400.0 SRM) Grain 9.52 %
0.50 lb Black (Patent) Malt (500.0 SRM) Grain 4.76 %

1.00 oz Northern Brewer [9.50 %] (60 min) Hops 21.6 IBU
1.00 oz Willamette [4.00 %] (20 min) Hops 5.5 IBU
1.00 oz Willamette [4.00 %] (5 min) Hops 1.8 IBU

1 Pkgs American Ale II (Wyeast Labs #1272) Yeast-Ale

And the use of cherry smoked was due to PassedPawn, so I agree with him wholeheartedly. Let us know what you go with!
