As I don't have any smoked malt I've tried what I think might be quite a sneaky little cheat. Having used cups of tea successfully in turbo cider I hoyed some lapsang souchong teabags into my wort at the end of my boil and let them steep for 10 min , there was a definite hint of a smoky aroma so hopefully that'll still be there after fermentation.Might even consider "dry hopping"with a few bags a few days before bottling. Anyone else done anything similar ie using flavoured tea in a brew , how did it turn out ?
