Recipe Description:

This recipe is designed to make a strong Scottish and Irish Ale that is very dark amber in color. Fermentables include Crystal Malt 80 L, Flaked Oats, and Dark Brown Sugar. It uses English hops dosed for hop-malt balance, with additions for bittering only. The Scottish Ale yeast is well-suited for the style, and can provide estery hints with warmer fermentation temperatures.
