Had to tell everyone about our negligence there eh' TG? haha First boil over in a long time. Stupid PapaJohns. I thought about the OG and this was the first tiem I've ordered from BrewMasters Warehouse. I always hit my numbers withing a point or so with Northernbrewer set at 75% in Brewsmith. BrewMastersWarehouse must have a better crush for my setup. a few extra points never a bad thing

Question for you BierMuncher
Were you able to smell or taste any smokiness in the hydro samples or runnings? I didn't get any from it. But it also seems most of my worts all smell and taste the same until after fermentation!

Very pleased with smoked level, It was enough to remind of of a Schlenkerla Marzen but not AS strong. It may come through more or less as gravity drops. Was 1026 after 2 weeks. Working on rousing it up.

IP...I am having the same issue with the gravity not dropping enough. Are you thinking about repitching? My last reading (tonight) came in at apx 1.027 (this was after swirling it around a bit on Friday). I think you mentioned that you had some similar issues with Safale-04 in the past.

Hydrometer broke so who knwos what this finsihed at. I am confident it basically stayed at 1026. Just got this gassed up and pulled my first carboneted pint tonight. It is fantastic. Pretty close to Schlenkerla, I think next year Wehn I make this again for teh fall (Oh yes it will be a yearly Fall campfire beer) I will make a starter for sure, and add some flaked wheat for head and body. This would be a meal if sureved on Beer-Gas.

Did you base this on the O'Fallon Smoke? I'm drinking one right now and really enjoying it, was looking around already for a recipe. I know one of the brewer's sons, maybe I can get some inside info.

It was inspired by their smoked porter, but not an attempt to clone. Dave (brewer at O'Fallon) told me they use around 60% smoked malt.

I brewed this a few weeks ago, I added magnum dry hops in the second and some american oak chips to give it a little more bite, really great beer though. big ups biermuncher

In case anyone needs a source, I get Beech Smoked Malt from www.annapolishomebrew.com I use it in my AA's all the time because I have a bunch of giant beech trees here so I like to give some brews a taste of home...

Anyhow AHB is a good source for Beechy Malt...
