Beer Style: Scottish Heavy 70/- (9B)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

Scottish Heavy 70/-

Description:

To my knowledge, there is no beer produced in Scotland in the gravity range of 1.055 - 1.070, so I made my own to 1.060 and called it "Wee Export." It uses traditional black malt for color and a bit of brown sugar to boost the sweetness (per the style). Also, the mash was conducted at a somewhat higher temperature to bring out unfermentable sugars, and the yeast had a relatively lower attneuation than some of the other standard ale yeasts on the market. The beer ages well and is still wonderfully drinkable after a full year in the bottle. Slainte!

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds, 2--row Klages malt
  • 1/2 pound, crystal malt (60L)
  • 1/4 pound, black patent malt
  • 1/4 pound, flaked barley
  • 5 pounds, amber malt extract syrup (American Classic)
  • 1 pound, dark brown sugar
  • 1 ounce, Northern Brewer hop pellets (6.5% alpha)
  • 2 ounces, Fuggles hop pellets (4.5% alpha)
  • 3 teaspoons, gypsum
  • 1/4 teaspoon, Irish moss

  • 3/4 cup, corn sugar (bottling)

Procedure:

Step mash. Crush grains and add to 3 qts water (with gypsum dissolved) at 130F. Maintain mash temperature at 125 for 30 min (protein rest). Add 3 quarts of boiling water to mash and maintain temperature at 158 for 1 hour (saccharification rest). Drain wort and sparge grains with 5 quarts water at 170. Add to the wort in the brewpot the malt extract and brown sugar. Bring to a boil. After 30 minutes of boil, add 1/2 ounce of Northern Brewer hops and 1/2 ounce of Fuggles hops. After 15 more minutes, add an additional 1/2 ounce of each hop. Boil for a total of 1- -1/2 hours. Ten minutes before the end of the boil, add the Irish moss. Five minutes before the end of the boil, add 1 ounce of Fuggles hops (for aroma). Cool the wort with a wort chiller and add to the primary fermenter with sufficient water to make 5 gallons. Pitch yeast when temp of wort is below 75. Ferment at 65 for 5 days. Rack to secondary and ferment for 15 more days at 65. Bulk prime with corn sugar before bottling.
