a part of our Celebrating
we developed this recipe in collaboration with Free State Brewery and
McCoy's Public House (hence the Clan). Strong Scottish Ale is also
known as Wee Heavy. This deep amber brew has red-orange highlights
beneath the off-white head which gently collapses. It has a rich
malt aroma with a hint of peaty earthiness. Layers of flavors
dominated by sweet malt with toasty, roasty, caramely characteristics
and a hint of smoke. Hopping is quite low, just enough to balance
the sweetness and cleanse the palate. A rich full-bodied beer. What
better for a celebration.
Clan of the Kilt contains 9.9 lbs Malt extract, 3 lb
of milled grain for a mini mash, hops, priming sugar, fining agents and a
Wyeast Activator smack pack.
Each Bacchus Batches kit is
formulated to produce a specific style of beer. Since the quality and
alpha acid in hops vary sometimes significantly from one year to the
next or from one bale to the next we adjust the varieties and amounts of
hops in Bacchus Batches kit to provide consistent results.
