Cause where there’s smoke . . .
Brushfire - a smooth and smoky brown ale featuring Briess’ one of a kind Cherrywood Smoked Malt - it’s distinct and robust, with an aroma reminiscent of bacon, and more pleasant than the sharp acrid tang of a peat smoked malt. Well balanced, with restrained smoke, and caramel, chocolate, and toasty flavors all melding to produce an outstandingly drinkable beer with an unobtrusive, sweet, earthy smokiness redolent of a wet campfire.

smokey beer
Made this beer with some friends. I can taste the's a little too strong for me. I like the malt they used in comparison to other smoked malts. Beer had a good body to it. And the hops balanced well.

Can taste the smoke
I brewed this a couple of weeks ago - 1 week primary, 1 1/2 secondary, 3 days force carbonating in my corny keg. Tried it last night, and my wife and I really liked it. Smoke flavor was there but was not overpowering. Well balance with the malt and the hop bitterness.

Very good brown ale- well balanced
Another solid kit from MW- nice balanced flavors of a high quality brown ale with just the right amount of smoky flavor a the end. Made with the dry yeast and aged in the secondary for 1 month. Kegged and started sampling. Certainly has gotten much better with age as it has been in the keg now for one month. Will bottle some for aging as I am sure it will just get better with time. Undoubtedly one of the best tasting brown ales I have ever made or drank. Will order more and highly suggest you do as well!

smokey the beer
Good kit. When fermenting you can REALLY smell the smoke...was a little worried. But by the time it was done carbing in the bottle, it had settled a little bit. Still noticeable but not too strong.

If you like smoked beer then give this a try. Its a much better smoked taste than Peat smoked malt. I gave it 3 weeks in the primary, 3 in the secondary, and then bottled it. It's smokey but not as smokey as I feared. I'd brew this again if I could reduce the smoked malt form 1 pound to 12 ounces. I think that would be just right.

Very tasty and smokey
I was very happy with this recipe and it was a perfect for the family camping last fall. Seriously, sitting by the fire at night, this brew paired well with the atmosphere. It is definitely worth a second go and I totally recommend it!!!

Smoked beer thats not over powering
It definitely has a smoked taste but it blends with the malt back bone rather than dominating the entire beer. Its a good sipping beer for the flavor, rather than a beer I'd drink a six pack of. It has a pleasant smokey aroma as well.

Would make again
Overall a balanced, smokey beer , with chocolate and dark flavors. It has a great aroma while being brewed, and is fun to drink while sitting at the fireplace.

Excellent brew
I started brewing beer just over a year ago. Brushfire was my first effort. My friends and I have rated it highest of all the brews I have made. I have made a total of 12 kits. Brushfire was 5 of them.

I wanted to try something different
I read about smoked beers and decided to give this a go. I used the 1056 liquid yeast with a starter that I prepared the day before. I used a 2/2/2 schedule and just had a beer. You know what? Its pretty good. I didn't know what to expect but I like it. It has a smoke flavor but it's not overpowering. Its a good beer that I am happy to drink.
