Well, my creativity is trying to get the best of me. I have opted to brew a smoked porter, but with some special additions, which only a few people know about, so hush hush until I reveal please. (I recently tried Stone's Smoked Porter with Chipotle Peppers and found that to be quite a tasty brew.)
The brew day went very smoothly today. I decided to use Briess Cherrywood Smoked Malt, sparingly. Yes, I did say sparingly. Smoked malt addition is only 15% in this one. Recipe projected OG: 1.056. Actual measured OG: 1.060. 5.25 gallons into the fermenter. Stay tuned when this goes to secondary as that is when things will start to get interesting.
