Brewing Beer: Wee Heavy, Scottish Ale, 80 or 90 Shilling Ale
Matt, friend of ours, chose this style for our next batch. Wee Heavys are known for being higher in alcohol content, very malty and somewhat sweet. 10 lbs. of liquid amber malt extract, 1 lb. brown sugar, and 8 oz. of molases should get us there! We're aiming for 8-9% avb. Hey do you remember the exploding fermenter problem? Well this time I remembered and used a blow off tube again. The picture here is of last time. This time I'm using a glass carboy as the primary. Oh yeah, and the barleywine is doing fine.
