Beer Style: Classic Rauchbier
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
This is basically a nice light beer, but with a definite smoke aftertaste. Mainstream, but with a non-commercial twist.
Boil extract, liquid smoke, and boiling hops in 2-3 gallons of water for 45 minutes. Add Irish moss and finishing hops and boil 5 more minutes. Strain into fermenter, add cold water to make 5 gallons, pitch yeast. After 3 days rack to secondary. Allow to ferment an additional 3-4 weeks.
