Yes but what did you DO with the 3 bags of smoked malt? Share amongst the club? Or do you just REALLY like Rauchbier?
if you look down the thread he says he does it for a friend who owns a commercial brewery.
I have a bottle of that beer in my fridge (assuming Jeff still does it for him) and I can't wait to have it - one of my favorite smoked beers, and favorite beers of theirs.
I think Mr. Gladish is friends with more than one commercial brewer.
I've been the organizer for a statewide pro beer competition for about 13 years, so I know a few.
I've smoked malt for Swamphead in Gainesville several times, Tampa Bay Brewing Co. and Southern Brewing.
If I had any time I'd smoke enough to sell it at homebrew shops. Custom-smoked malt seems like a good idea to me.
