Scottish 60/-
« on: October 10, 2011, 06:18:35 PM »
Scottish 60/-
OG: 1.034

6lbs. (2.7kg) pale 2row
6oz flaked barley
3.2 oz Special B malt (or Caramunich 120)
1.6 oz pale chocolate malt
1.6 oz roasted barley
.6oz of Fuggles @ 75 (4.5% AA)

Mash @ 153 for 60 mins  (3.1L per kg)
75 min boil.

Wyeast 1728 (although I had none so I used Fermentis S04)

So I stand corrected.  Its comes in at 2.9% ABV @ 75% efficiency with a hella fast turn around time (especially with the S04)

bet if you used a spunding valve you could go grain to glass in 3 days or less

Yeah I'd noticed, although the hype seems justified from what I've sampled. Should probably stop pointing this out on every recipe though :P

I got to say having been in Scotland long enough to sample the various shilling grades, that I wouldn't compare them to a bitter. Much more malt-forward... I think I'm going to try my hand at a 70/- next to fill the time between now and when my saison yeast arrives :)
