This is my best Pils to date. Might have something to do with the Moravian barley, Cz Saaz, and Cz yeast, eh? The smoke was rather unintentional and is way in the background and is more intense if you stir up the yeast. The smoke seems to come out more w/ age. It is quite smokey, but not a Rauchbier, after 8 wks since brew day in bottle. I have no temp controlled fermentor and would like to make this at the proper temp. Mind you, I detect no diacetyl and some fruity esters. Overall, a good summer beer !

38 mins @ 122F, 50 mins @ 140, 31 mins @ 158, mash out 7 mins @ 170F. I got 83% efficiency using a camp cooler w/ manifold and 35 sparge pts before boil. Cost $11.96 CAD or $0.18c/12 oz bottle. My target was a Geo Fix 50-60-70C mash schedule as the Statlauer was undermodified. Added the Caravienne during the 70C rest ala C. Papazian, as didn't want to darken colour
