Hi all,
I have some leftovers from my last batch s i decided to brew a batch with just that. I made my recipe in beersmith and I would really like some more experienced brewers to review and point out the possible flaws.
Thanks

Some of my best brews were a result of throwing together whatever I had on hand. I'm sure it will be good.

Curious- what style did you come up with for this brew and did it fit the guidelines. I usually try to fit a custom brew to the closest style just for comparison sake. You can then tweak it to taste with hops, etc to get bitterness in line. OR not!
  I'm thinking "other smoked beer" with the rauchmalz. Sounds interesting. I made a smoked beer similar with lager yeast. Came out great.
Yours sounds tasty let us know the result
Remember - if you like it thats all that really matters, and if you can duplicate it even better.
CHEERS
