I finished off the Apfelwine that I took to work and tapped the Smoked Brown Ale. Since this was the first recipe I created from scratch, I was worried how it would turn out.
The smoke really doesn't come through that strong. You notice a hint of it at the back end of the swallow but that is it. If I were to brew this again I would double up on the smoked malt. One of the guys who tasted it said he wouldn't have known it was a smoked beer unless I told him first. I'll leave it up to him to provide his opinion on it (hint, hint John...)
I also ordered another 3 lbs of hops. The first round of hops I purchased was to cover the English and American hops. This second (and last) order was to get the German/Bohemian hops. I bought a pound each of Czech Saaz, German Perle and German Tradition from Hops Direct
