Smoked Ale

Postby Hunty » 30 Oct 2008, 08:27

Picked up a few bottles of this at the Fort Canning Oktoberfest a few weeks back:

Must say, its a great beer. Not overly smoked but very pleasant, made using malt that has first been smoked with peat. Wondering if I could smoke my own malt before crushing hmmmm... :?:

Available at Cold Storage, Charcoal/BBQ section. I always use a dash or two when marinating meat for grilling/roasting.

Let me guess. Your gonna smoke the malt in your smoker arn't you. Let me know how it went. Interested in brew also. I still have 4 bottles of the smoke ale. I think if you tweak your scottish ale it would work.

spot on hayman...

but as I understand it how long u smoke for is an art not a science... maybe I'll smoke up a couple of kg for 3 or 4 hours and try 250-500 g in a brew, keep the rest aside for future attempts witha few different brews at different smoke strength.

hehe of course.

I do have a smoker, but its really designed for wet smoking meats... I have thought about using it for grains but not got around to it yet. ... what I may do is remove the water pan, smoke it out for 1/2 hour to 1 hour, see what I get...

LOL well most of that singlish jive talk is beyond me, but here is my attempt at translation: "your sister lived at bukit tima for 10 years but she or you still don't know where the serene centre is, and if you did, the smoker is too expensive for you". Would that be close ? :D :lol:

'sia la' is just an exclamtion with no particular meaning. So it goes something like this:

I have lived there for 10 years! Bo lui = no $$$ in hokkien. haha. Hunty, you got to learn some of these. :lol:
