Scottish and Irish Ale
Batch Size (gal):
Boil Volume (gal):
This recipe is designed to make a moderately strong Scottish and Irish Ale that is very dark amber in color. Fermentables include Crystal Malt 120 L, Special B Malt, and Belgian Candi Sugar (clear). 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.
