fdemt84 - thanks for feedback. What do you reckon would get it closer? Could you taste any of the challenger orange thing coming though? I wondered if a small challenger flavouring addition might help(?)

I remember it tasting good but as far as how close off the top of my head I couldn't tell you. I'm out of town the next 10 days by can let you know when I get back and can look at my notes. I haven't brewed in awhile but I do I know my next brew or two will consist of this one again.

So, did anyone ever brew this, and if you did, how did it turn out? I've been making Scottish ales for the last couple of months (for the Highland Games season here in Florida), and I feel like something with hops, but not overboard.

Cheers & Sláinte,
Howard

Thanks for the quick reply.

OK, I'm going to make this, but I have a couple of questions.

1} original recipe calls for 0.25kg / 9oz crystal - what did you use? I'm thinking of using 8oz crystal 40L and 2oz crystal 120L.
2} what temp did you mash at? I'm thinking of 152°F.
3} what temp did you ferment at? I'm thinking of 68°F.

Cheers & Sláinte,
Howard

Sorry been pretty busy with work and didn't get back in country until just recently. I don't know which crystal I used it was light. (Guessing 40l)
I will be brewing again in another week or so an I'm going to use 1lb of 45l. My mash temp was 148f. And pitched yeast at 68 fermented at 72. I switched to secondary 9 days in then let sit for 5 more days before bottling. OG was 1.062 FG was 1.008 (FG might be off showing I took at 72 deg, not sure if I corrected)
