I loved this beer. Honestly I could find nothing wrong with it and wouldn't change a thing. At this risk of sounding immodest, it also got rave reviews from a smoked porter aficionado at my LHBS - he made a direct comparison to Alaskan Brewing Company's Smoked Porter.

I should make this again soon

I am finishing up a batch of Loon Lake Smoke porter which is very heavy on smoke and I was looking for a recipe that is smoky, but not as much, and I want to add bacon too it. This may be the perfect recipe for that

Thanks for the recipe OP, I also like the batch size. I'll put this on the list, hopefully sooner rather than later!

Did you try it? I'd love to know how using bacon turned out!

I think I've decided to brew this up next - will make for a wonderful winter beer. Let me know how yours turns out if/when you decide to brew it.

Question on the oak cubes. Having never used them, should I soak them for a few days in vodka? I see me brewing this no later than mid-November. I totally agree about this as a winter beer. Kicking back by an outdoor fire with a brew like this - sounds pretty heavenly.

Here's what I did with the oak - put the cubes in a glass jar, just cover with water, put in the microwave and give it a whirl for a minute...then another minute....(just make sure that it has boiled during that time - if not, go another minute or two)...carefully take the jar out (it will be hot) and decant the now brown water and dump the cubes into the fermenter.

This is a technique I learned from one of the Brewing Network podcasts with oak (and wine yeast) expert Shea Comfort. That's also where I learned about using the oak in the primary - the idea is that it doesn't lend too much oak flavor, but the tannins add to the mouthfeel.
