5.0 / 5.01 ReviewPleasant smoke tasteThis is the nicest smoked grain I've tried. Far better than peat smoked malt, it doesn't dominate (and ruin) a beer. It adds the smoke taste in a gentle overall way so that it accentuates the malt flavor.February 23, 2014

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 5 answersCould this be used as a steeping grain for 20-30 when paired with an extract beer kit? I'm not looking to increase gravity but want some flavor/aromas.BEST ANSWER: I am not the authority on this topic, but I have seen information suggesting that smoked malts would require a full mash. You might get smoke flavor/aroma in a partial mash, but you could end up with unconverted starches as well, which may lead to some unwanted flavors. If you are willing to go more than 20-30 minutes, you could do 60 minutes at 145-150 degrees with the smoked malt in a grain bag, which would essentially be a mash. If you don't want to add the extra time, you're welcome to experiment. I've done plenty of things that I'm told I should not do, and I generally enjoy the results. Personally, I like to experiment, since I'm the target audience for most of my beers.
