I realize the smoked malt is a larger part of the grain bill, but I enjoy O'Fallon's smoked porter and I believe it is around 60% smoked malt...

I found this scribbled on some scratch paper but pretty sure I based it on an existing recipe somewhere.

Anyway, thoughts on this as a start?

11 lb. smoked malt
5 lb. munich
2 lb cara-pils
1.5 lb crystal 40L
1.5 chocolate malt

Northern brewer hops
Williamette hops

Recipe looks good. Interested which yeast you will opt for. The only other thing i see (and you can't go wrong) is flaked barley vs cara-pils.

What kind of smoked malt do you plan on using?

WLP007 might be a good yeast choice - love it as used to make Surly Bender, which is a similar beer (though not smoked), and the attenuation would balance out the "sweetness" of smoked malt.
