Making an all grain batch of ipa we burned the grain. Beer in 2ndary fermenter and has a very smokey smell/flavor. Any suggestions on fixing/saving batch? Thanks.
Sorry to say there’s not much you can do at this point. Either drink it or toss it.
May I ask how you burned the grain? Direct fire mash tun?
I doubt there is anything you can do to alter the flavor. Large amounts of dry hops probably won’t help.
You could try a drop or two of whiskey in a glass to see if it’s drinkable.
Yes, direct fire mash. I’ll try a little alcohol in a test sample and see what happens. Thanks for the imput.
My last thought would be to keep it for a marinate. Do you or a friend/co-worker have a smoker?
Or infect it and turn it into a malt vinegar?
