(Makes 5 gallons) An extremely malty beer that really emphasizes malt over hops. Most styles are more balanced, which means the bitterness of the hops is proportional to the sweetness of the malt. Not true with our Scotch ale where the deep malt flavor is king. Scotch Ale yeast strains typically ferment well in the low-to-mid 60's and leave behind very few esters or fruity flavors, which further emphasizes the malt. This recipe has over 11 lbs of malt extract and only one ounce of hops!

Great, non-hoppy beer!
This was only my third brew but it came out really well; my favorite so far. I'm not a fan of hoppy beers and this one is definitely not hoppy. Good flavor and very potent!

Malty scotch ale
This ale is very malty as advertised. Too malty for my taste but friends I’ve shared it with love it.

I got this kit as gift awhile back and brewed it in june. Its now August and I am really pleased with the way it has turned out. This beer is very malty so just FYI. It reminded me of McEwans scotch ale which I think is really tasty. If you like strong malty beers this one will definitely please. I doubled up on the yeast since this is quite a high gravity beer. Let it sit a couple weeks in the bottle. Its fine at 2 weeks carbonated but 4 weeks is perfect.

Good, malty, needs complexity
I like the basic recipe, but feel the need to modify it. I add some chocolate malt and a cup of molasses; then it really is tasty! Make sure you use a starter, it is fairly high OG and the yeast need the help. I've fermented it at low and high temps (59deg to 70deg) with WLP028 and always had good results; it conditions beautifully and ages nicely as well; a 2-yr bottle was wonderful.

Excellent, complex, slow to carbonate
This resulted in a great, complex brew nearly 10pct above. Recommend a yeast starter with alcohol tolerant yeast as the abv is high. My batch was slow to carbonate, which I attribute to the yeast and no starter. After about 6 mo, this beer was amazing... Complex, smooth and delicious. Tasted like an aged vintage ale, will age well.
