Smokebeer update

I'm drinking a bottle of Smokebeer #2 now. I think it's still a little green. The smoked malt seems to need a fair bit longer to mature; it is really lager malt after all.

It's a bit thin. I might mash hotter next time, and use more dark malt.

  1. It's getting better. Still an odd kind of flavour that I can't quite put my finger on. I think the Weyermann smoked malt I used is quite different in character from Schlenkerla's own. But look at me making out that the difference is in the malt and not that they've been doing it for 400 years longer than I have.
