Scottish beers are one of my favorite. I’ve shared a few Scottish beers I’ve brewed over the years on my site. I haven’t brewed in a while, then I couldn’t decide on one recipe. So I combined Beer Captured Kilt Lifter with Clone Brews Belhaven Scottish ale clone and made my own beer.
I will say that I think my beer color wise and taste wise is a little light for a Scottish beer, alcohol wise it’s correct.
Brewout Scottish 80 Shillingish
8 oz Munich 10 L
13 oz Crystal 40L
3 oz Peat smoked malt
1 Cup Dark Brown sugar
10 lbs 2 row
2 oz East Kent Golding hops
1 oz hops for 60 mins
1 oz hops 15 mins
Smack pack of Scottish yeast
Single Sparge mash with 90 min boil. I did take a small pan full of beer and boil it down to half during the boil then add pan full back in to add a bit of caramel flavoring.
Ferment at room temp, keg and force carbonate.
The joy of homebrewing is you don’t have to follow anyone’s recipe, sometimes you don’t get exactly what you are looking for and other times you create your own gem.
