Dissapointed Graetzer Malt DIY?
« on: December 20, 2014, 05:09:14 pm »
Mashed 8lbs Weyermann Oak-smoked Wheat malt; .25lb Saur (Acid) malt; 2lbs rice hulls today, The malt was definitly old. Can barly detect oak smell. (my own fault- LHBS bought it back in Feburary so i kind of had it coming).
Thinking about smoking my own, but dont know what type of oak i should use and for how long, so i was gonna buy 16-24lbs plain old german wheat malt and do a couple test smokings.
Any thoughts?

I would just buy oak smoking blocks out of the grilling section of a local shop.

Some like white over red.

Post oak is used for brisket in TX. Hard to find up north
