I force carbed this and finally got it on tap at 10psi last night. From the very first pint, I knew that this was an instant classic. Between the higher mash temps and the Munich base, it finished nice and malty, almost chewy, which it really needs to balance the roasty, smoky character. The higher IBU really works, too---again, it helps to balance the peaty smoke. Now I'm scared---it's on tap, and I can't get enough of it. My poor liver. :eek: I also bottled 3 12oz'ers before racking it to the keg, because my volumes were a bit high (it was like 1" from the lip of a 5 gallon carboy!), so maybe someone gets on in a beerswap. :)

Going to try this oen tonight as well! :)

What do you think of doubling the peated malts to 0.5lbs? Im an Islay Whisky drinker and think Id like the smokier taste. Really I guess I should make two batches and see what the difference is.
