Brewing this today, I love Islay scotch so I am wondering if my taste for smoke will carry over to beer...

I did up the grain bill too 52% Smoked malt as I was afraid I would drink some and be left wanting more smoke.

I think you'll be happy upping the smoke. I may up it even more next year and do a smaller bottled batch as more of a specialty beer. Currently mine is pretty smokey, but I can handle 2-3 in a row.

I could barley detect any smoke in the wort, when I let a sample cool the smell came through fairly nicely but there was still little taste. Hope it is just masked by the sweetnes and comes out after time. Either way I can tell she is gonna be great and can't wait to crack one open.

Yeah I could barely detect any smokiness post boil. Let it ferment, you'll be happy.

I didn't use 9 SRM I used Wyermans smoked malt whcih is lighter. I did some checking and from what I could find was beech smoked and my LHBS assured me it was not peat smoked. I upped the grain bill slightly as well but if you are worried about the color, don't be it will still be very dark.

i'm not worried about the color really, i'm just worried that i'm using the right stuff. i've seen other recipes call for 9 SRM smoked and i'm wondering where they are getting it.

I scaled this down to 1.1 gallons, and brewed it up tonight using Deathbrewer's Stovetop AG method. OG and volumes came out spot on. Rehydrated the yeast, and in less than 1.5 hours it's bubbling away in the ferm chamber set @ about 62-64F.

Hydrometer sample tasted great. The smoke flavor came out nicely. Can't wait to drink it.

I did not secondary this last time I made it. I think if I wanted to drop out as much yeast as possible I might do something like that however it does need to age a little longer imo.

It was great bottled after 3 weeks but give it even an extra week or two and this beer is superb. It is a must have on hand for the winter months. Actually gonna get me another 10 gals rolling next week.
