Scottish 80 Shilling with Heather
A Scottish 80/-! It’s a traditional kind of Scottish ale. This recipe also came from Just Brew It! in Fayetteville. Even though this is Doug’s recipe, I’m sure it came out a little different from how he intended. I accidentally let the temperature get just a little high after adding the extract, so maybe it’ll end up with a little more caramelized flavor? I dunno. I understand that an 80/- should have a caramelized flavor, so maybe it’ll work out. I haven’t tried one yet, but it should be ready soon!
