Brew #11: Smoked Porter

December 16, 2011

Sparged with 6 litres instead of the usual 4, OG was still 2 points above what BeerSmith  showed – same amount of work, 2 litres of more beer, you do the math! 6 litres and the wort level was almost up to the malt pipe so not much capacity to go over 6, but perhaps adding a few litres during the boil and seeing how well OG holds up. Plenty of space in the fermentor anyway.

Smoked some malt in the oven using those foil-bags containing alder wood chips meant for smoking fish etc at home (link here), got roasted a bit too.
