Default Smoked Ales

I did my first smoked "blonde" ale using a blonde extract kit & using some smoked grains. It was delicious!! However my "blonde" turned into a brunette with the smoked grains...any thoughts on keeping it light colored with a great smokey flavor??
Any other smoked ale suggestions? Love that flavor!

The color of the grain dictates the color of the beer, so you just need to find a lighter-colored smoked malt. What smoked grain did you use last time? The Wyermann's looks fairly light in color compared to some others:
Primary #1 - Midnight Ryeder (Midnight Wheat and Rye)
Primary #2 - Florida Weiss
Primary #3 - Kane-DOH APA (Honey Citra APA)
Secondary #1 - Downtown Flanders Brown (brewed August 2012)
Keg #1 - Raspberry Florida Weiss
Keg #2 - Cinnamon Raisin Cider
Keg #3 - NONE!
Bottled - NONE!
