Smoke Beer (Rauchbier) | How To Make Beer

A smoke beer is a traditional beer style, the result of pre-kilned malting. This recipe goes all out with a 95% cherry wood smoke malt base for a full smoke effect. Is this homebrew heaven or will the beer go up in flames? Did we show you how to make bad beer?
