    What a great idea! Unfortunately, I'm still too green to offer much, but I like the idea of a community based recipe. Best of luck and looking forward to the results.

    :)

    That's an adaptation of my (award winning) Pine Curtain Black IPA. I've got a bit of Rye in that one and the hops are all piney hops, but I think there are enough similarities that this should be a good version. It's a big, big, dark-malty brew with a little roast in the flavor, but not too much. I think your smoked malt along with some Victory and the Amber malt as well as the Perle and Magnum hops may give some of the nutty, spicy feel that's the Rye might bring.

    @JA. Is the 1.87 oz correct on the Columbus hops in your recipe? All other additions are in more rounded numbers? Or is that to hit a style guideline by tweaking one of the hop additions to get the right bittering? Just curious as I am learning too. :D

    Looks like two incredibly tasty brews and a bit more complex than my 4 malt 2 hop combos. I think now Ozarks either you gotta brew em both or at least one of them and let us know how you fair unless your not satisfied with these two offers lol

    Wish I could help, but not sure you need advise on a beer recipe from a relative noob like me.

    They all look pretty good. That Pale Ale is quite close to my house Pale. I use less or no C-40 and more Victory, but that's almost exactly what my early versions looked like. Good beer! ;)

    I changed the 40 to amber, it should be the same flavor as you like
