Well, that's a smackdown. I have not idea how to even infuse a wort or mash with smoke.
I guess all I can reply is that I have been to Weltenberg a couple of times.
Man, am I going to enjoy this hobby.
All sounds good save for the sours -- not a big fan, guess I lied when I said I'll drink any beer.

Hi all, my first kit batch (an English ale) finished carbonating and was quite drinkable.
I am ready to start a second batch and was wondering if the is a place where I can find 1 gallon recipes?
I am thinking about next trying a super hazy IPA, like one I had in NM back over New Years (it was...
