I'm getting ready to make my first smoked sour in a couple of weeks and would like to rack off 3 gallons or so onto some fresh peaches. I've never used peaches before so what would be a good amount that wouldn't overpower the smokiness of the sour but still come through. I'm thinking 1 1/2 or 2 lbs per gallon. Sound good or too much?

Sounds about right to me. Peaches don't have the most intense flavor, so you'll need a lot for them to stand up to the smoke.

Cool--I was leaning towards 2lbs/gallon. I'll taste it before I add to see how strong the smoked flavor tastes first, though.
