I've made the Manuka Smoked Red Ale, it's very good. The smoke character from the manuka smoked malt is very mild - I think the recipe calls for 30% smoked malt and I kicked it up to 50% and still liked it. It's not like an overpowering rauch malt.Gladfield malt has a recipe page on the web site and I was wondering if anyone has given any of them a try.
I did a Manuka Smoked barleywine which was basically 99% smoked malt and 1% carafa II. Just bottled @ 11% ABV+. She sure is on the smokey side!
If you did a cursory search of their website, you would very easily find descriptions of all of the malts that they make, and what they are comparable to...I emailed Gladfields and got the translations for some of the strange names they use and the Aurora malt is an aromatic. Any thoughts?
