I say recipe check but just got done milling my grains and they are mixed for the morning so there isn't much tweaking to that. I think the recipe seems solid enough, as did the local brew store I showed it to. Questions below the recipe:
15lb two row
1 lb crystal 60
8 oz chocolate malt
8 oz roast barley
1.5 lb cherry smoked malt
3.4oz Carafa III
1oz Warrior (whole) @ 60
1 oz Amarillo (pellet) @ 60
Nottingham with 230ml starter
Single infusion, medium body, no mash out
Batch size (fermenter) 5 gallon
The only extra hops I have are more Amarillo, Cascade, Willamette, Santiam, Tettnang, Cluster.
I have an additional 5.5oz of smoked malt. I don't want the smoke to dominate, just add to the profile. Should I add this malt or stick with the 1.5lb?
Should I add .5-1lb corn sugar to dry out the beer a bit?
Add 1oz Semi-sweet baker's chocolate?? (on hand)
Looking forward to brewing just before Isaac hits Florida
