Wicked man glad you liked it! :o) I was going for something more of a smoked brown ale but used too much choch so it went really dark, I did a smoked Porter previously which was alot sweeter but it doesnt go down as well in the hot weather as you pointed out...
I made that recipe up back in the day before I even had beersmith :o)
Hey Mike - did you drop some smoked porter into Dave at Regionals? If so, he was raving about it today... Got me some Mayhem, Pale Ryder and a couple of Fuller's Vintage. I think I need a dozen vintage.
Bugger, someone's beaten me to it, but GO THE MIGHTY WARRIORS anyway!
Can't wait for the season to start - our season tickets arrived a couple of weeks ago, and the first (local) warm-up game is in a couple of weeks.
Might have to consider the sneaky Camelbak-full-of-homebrew for some trips to Mount Smart this season!
imp IPA transformed into an American Barleywine cos it stopped at 1.025. I was still impressed my S05 got it down that far and pre-bottle hydro sample tasted great. Never brewed anything with an OG that high but it was a lot simpler than i expected.
If i ever go that big again I think I'll get the Wyeast 9093 that you used so i don't have to change it to a barleywine halfway through
