#33  Holy Smokes! Rauchbier
7 lbs Pale 2-row Malt
3 lbs Smoked Malt
1/2 lb Caramunich Malt
1.5 oz Hallertauer Hops (4.5%AA)(60 min)
1 tsp Irish Moss (15 min)
1 vial WLP-810 San Francisco Lager
- Boil 60 minutes, hopping per schedule.
- Chill wort, pitch yeast.
- Brewed 1 July 2006.  SG 1.054 (71% efficiency).
- 8 July 2006.  Racked to Secondary.
- 23 July 2006.  Kegged with some Sparkolloid.  SG: 1.010,
~5.8% a/v).  A disproportionate amount of the smoked malt
may have been peat-smoked.  I'll have to do my own
smoking from now on.  Otherwise, a basically clean beer.
- 19 August.  Drinkable, and deceptively strong.  Still too
peaty, but not bad.  Next time, definitely  homemade smoked
malt.
