What a great recipe. Lovely mix of smooth smoked malt with a not-too-bitter dark backbone. The wood adds a nice charred, bourbon element to the beer which may or may not be desirable to you. I really enjoyed my hydrometer sample before racking to secondary along with the wood pack and now I’m wishing I had split some of the beer off just to enjoy the smoke by itself, not encumbered by the wood.
I put the wood cubes in a nylon bag and suspended it from the keg lid. 6 days later the beer had what I felt was an appropriate level of wood/char flavor and I removed the bag. This sure didn’t take long, but then again they do give you a generous amount of wood in the kit as seen below.
