Michelle requested that I brew a Scottish ale what is now close to 4 weeks ago. It took a while to get the recipe, and a while longer to get the time to brew. Ella helped me shop for the ingredients this time. It was her idea to add some Marris Otter. While I measured my grains, she went to each bin at Steinbarts and sampled 1-2 malt kernels like I showed her. She made two laps around before I was done milling. Here’s the recipe.
- 9 lbs domestic 2-row
- 2 lbs Marris Otter
- 1 lbs Crystal 60L
- 1/4 lbs roasted barley
- 1/4 lbs peated malt
- 3/4 lbs torrified wheat
Hop Bill (if you can call it that)
- 1 oz. Santiam @ 60 minutes (5% alpha)
- 0.8 oz Santiam @ 10 minutes (5% alpha)
Rest of the recipe was pretty predictable. Irish moss, Safale S-04, blah blah. The wort that I sampled for a gravity reading was delicious.
