The very strongest of all Scottish ales, with a garnet-brown hue, profound maltiness and high alcohol content.
If you enjoyed Work Boot Scottish Wee Heavy, you'll love this kit!
Some Scottish historians theorize that Charles Stuart didn't flee Scotland after the failed 1745 uprising; instead, he had a few too many Wee Heavies in the Outer Hebrides and then just sort of woke up in France. History may keep her secrets, but you can share the experience of a Wee Heavy. There's a little Jacobite Revolution in every bottle.
These are the very strongest of all Scottish ales, with a garnet-brown hue, profound maltiness and high alcohol content. Our Wee Heavy showcases complex toffee and vinous notes and a restrained hop character. Best imbibed in small doses, this kit continues to develop with age and is great for cellaring.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

Great easy to follow kit. Sampled after primary fermentation an expect it to turn out to be one of my better batches.
I really like how the kit was packed, with the options for yeast. However, I activated the yeast pack the day before as per direction and wasn’t sure if I was supposed to put back into the fridge or leave it out at room temp- I put it in the fridge overnight and pulled back out on brew day- the pack had expanded so the yeast was active when I poured into the wort. The airlock was working 48 hrs later but then just stopped by 72 hrs so I’m not sure whether or not it’s done before the 1-2 week period....the airlock was not clogged. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to open and inspect or not. I’ve been making beer for several years and this is the first time I’ve experienced this result. You thoughts on next steps so I don’t prime and bottle before it’s ready? Thx
Haven"t brewed yet but did look through it and looks to be alot of fun brewing!-and sampling!
If you like sweeter maltier brews you will probably like this one
Too soon to tell. Brewing process went smoothly.
What I didn’t notice was that the 2nd fermentation phase takes 2 months, so I won’t know until December.
It surprised me since I’ve done another wee Scottish ale and the fermentation phase was significantly shorter.
I’ll report back once it’s done.
