Recipe – Clan Kennedy Wee Heavy – Scottish Ale

Screen Shot 2013-10-21 at 10.08.32 AMI really love this beer Wee Heavy; it’s big, rich, and malty. It scored a 40 at the New Jersey State Fair this year, which I was very happy about. I’ll probably be entering it in next year’s NHC with a couple small tweaks.  I’ll definitely be using RO water and may had a hint of peat smoke.
