  • Smoker
  • Mesh bag
  • Spray bottle full of water


  • wood / wood chips
  • Malt a light malt so it absorbs more smoke flavor


  • Prepare your smoker as per your manufacturers instructions for cold smoking. You want to pre heat your smoker for 120° F.
  • Soak your malt for 5 - 10 minutes then drain to moisten. If you have a fine mesh bag to hang in your smoker I would recommend using this. This will allow you to move the malt around evenly throughout the smoke so every grain is evenly flavored.
  • Once your smoker has pre heated and you have a nice clean smoke add in your malt.
  • Smoking should take around 4 hours. Throughout the smoke you want to keep your malt moist, so every half hour or so check and if it needs moistening spray with your water spray bottle.
