While in Adelaide I scored 500gm of smoke malt from Dave at Goliaths

I was a big sceptical on how much to add to a brew so , a Oktoberfest I added .150 gm

This I am drinking now and it's a beaut !
Loverly smoke falvour without being overpowering at all.

The I did a Porter and added what was left , .350 kg
I racked this today and had a taste , another winner I think , you can get away with a bit more in a porter I suppose.

I have heard of peolpe using 1kg-1.5kg , don't know about that as yet

Anyway if you are yet to try it , give it a go , it's a nice malt for thoses special brews

I will be ordering a few more kg's

Does anyone know if smoked malt is any good for making a scotch whiskey ;) :rolleyes:

Is it smoked with peat? Or wood smoke? Not that I would want to do anything "illegal" with it :rolleyes: I'm just curious. I know the smoked malt for scotch is smoked with peat, I'm just not sure where one would find some peat smoked malt in australia. I have tasted the smoked malt in a Wobbly Boot and in another wheat beer and can best describe it as a bacon flavour :blink: :unsure: . But it wasn't too bad, just different.

Keen for anyones thoughts or experiences.

Cheers, Justin

I'm drinking my Smoked Dunkel Hefeweizen right now.
It is a beauty.
