We're starting with a cream ale base, including some smoked malt in the mash, and adding coffee grounds at flame-out. Corn sugar is added as the first round of fermentation starts to die down. We're hoping to capture the flavor of your local shit-hole bowling alley. Wish us luck!

Notes:

After being in the keg for a while, the smoke has stuck around, but the coffee flavor has weakened. If we do this again, let's go with 1/2 or 2/3 of the smoked malt and double the coffee. Right now, it's a smoky beer with a hint of coffee. I want to simulate taking a drink of coffee w/creamer right after finishing a drag off of a cigarette.
