|Hi all --
Our brewmaster is gone for a month, and we thought we'd try something in his absence.
I'm looking at the recipe for Perfect Porter [url]http://www.beertutor.com/homebrewing/recipe.php?view_recipe=1&recipe=43&view=1[/url] (on this site). After the grains, it asks for Admiral hops, Willamette hops and 2.5 oz. of smoked peat.
The guy at the brew store said I could substitute Target hops for the Admiral hops (so I'll use Target and Willamette hops), but he had never heard of smoked peat. He had heard of (and has) smoked peat malt.
Could smoked peat malt be what the recipe means? Since the recipe only specifies 2.5 oz. of smoked peat, and is located after the hops in the recipe, I don't think so, but, I haven't been able to locate smoked peat on the web either.
Has anyone brewed the Perfect Porter? Can I just leave out the smoked peat, or should I add some smoked peat malt to the grains? I've already bought the grains, so if I add more, do I just make more than the 5 gallons I'd planned on, or keep it at 5 gallons?
