Nice. How'd you smoke the malt? Indirect smoke piped into a "smoking box"?

Yes.  Cold smoking is where it's at.  Three sacks of malt over alder chips for the 15 bbl. batch.

Well done!  How long did you smoke the malt?  I have been tempted to try it in my smoker, but I would have to borrow my buddies cold smoke attachment.  I was thinking of trying pecan chips.  And you did 3 sacks - not all at once, or was it?

They did a double batch, so it was actually 6 sacks.  My box holds one sack on eight shelves and a pound of chips burns for about 90 minutes. 
They like to use alder wood chips, but I keep telling them to source the local stuff since their motto is "inherently Floridian."  Citrus wood makes a smoke very similar to Beech in my opinion.
I have some photos of the smoker in an old thread.
