Yes, that's a lot of smoked malt.

Your numbers:
80.9% Pale Malt
8.5% C-60
6.4% Chocolate
4.2% Smoked

Sierra Nevada's Numbers:
93.5% Pale Malt
3.5% Chocolate
2.5% C-40
.5% Smoked

Their numbers dont work out with gravity, color ibu etc.

I sorta merged what they said with this post...

You're not brewing on their system either. Efficiency, utilization, carmelization, etc are all going to be different (maybe even different color/hop calculation formulas). Tweak it, but I'd stay a lot closer to their numbers than trying to rewrite it. That much smoke won't put you in the same ball park as Tumbler.

Just my $0.02.

Thanks guys. I was more concerned with just using that much smoked as opposed to hitting their numbers. The author of the recipe I posted and subsequent replies seem to indicate good results. I have just never used that much smoked malt in any beer.


When I throw their numbers in Beersmith all the numbers line up except color. Its WAAAAY low. Like 16.1 SRM. IBUs, Gravity ABV etc all work out though.

16.1 isn't that far off from looking at an SRM chart & remembering what it looked like the last time I had it. Did you try changing the color formula? Do they even report their SRM? If you're judging from the little color swatch on your monitor, your monitor settings could easily be off (the vast majority of people's monitors are).
