Only reason i chose this was because it cleans up so well. I wanted the biggest flavors to come from the peppers and the peated malt.

It may be a miss, and I am sure I will know about 2 hours from now if it is.

Thanks for the heads up though!
It's not so much the smoke, but the particular aroma/flavor of peat smoked malt - can be rather "medicinal". Nothing wrong with using 2 lbs (or more) of non-peat-smoked malt (like weyermann rauschmalt) if you want a smoked beer. Perhaps this will be fine - I have never tried using this much peat smoked malt, so I can't really say anything from personal experience...just from everything I've read about it. Cheers

I have to agree that is a lot of peat smoked malt. Although in saying that I love the peat - especially in my single malt. Never made an overly "peaty" beer however. Interested in know how this one turns out.

I have a Talisker 10 year single malt sitting a few feet away from my kitchen so I will make sure to test both and see

As for color there was nothing in your recipe that added much color right?

That is correct. In addition, after adding 4# of Golden DME at around 15 minutes, the peat smell has almost gone away completely.

OG was about 1.056

Looking forward to an update once this is kegged/bottled. Want to try my hand at a smoked jalapeno beer.
