Golden Promise
Golden Promise, an early-maturing spring barley, is the Scottish equivalent of Maris Otter. Though brewers north of the English border claim that its sweet, clean flavor is superior to Maris Otter. Golden Promise malt has a depth of flavor that makes it the ideal base malt for both UK and USA-style IPAs. Golden Promise is also used extensively by premium whisky distilleries such as The Macallan.

Or Maris Otter.

Cool. So on the most recently posted recipe, I could just go with 2 lbs. 11.1 oz. of Golden Promise then?

What is 'Optic', btw?

Thanks,
John

It's just a type of pale malted barley. Same as Maris Otter and Golden promise.

So, I just got through brewing this one and checked the OG on the wort. Its about 1.030 instead of the expected 1.042. Not sure what went wrong.

I'm ready to pitch the yeast. Is there anything that can be done at this point, or should I just go with it and see how the final product comes out?

Thanks,
John

Here's what I did:

- Brought 2.5 gallons of water to 160 degrees and turned off heat.
- Soaked grains in hot water and tried to maintain 155 degrees for 45 min. (had some trouble keeping it at 155, temp seemed to range between 150 and 170).
- After soaking, dunked the grain bag in and out and then ran 1.75 quarts of 170 degree water over grain bag in strainer.
- Brought wort to a boil, then removed from heat.
- Added the malt extract and brought back to a boil.
- Added bittering hops, turbinado sugar, and boiled for 60 min., following the hops addition schedule mentioned in the recipe.
- Cooled wort to 80 degrees and added filtered water to bring to 5 total gallons of wort.
- Took OG reading.

jcole,

What gave you a taste for Deuchars? Can you get it here in the States? I drank it almost everyday when I lived in Edinburgh.

I was recently over in London with my brother in law who was giving me the tour of some of his favorite pubs and ales.

Deuchars IPA was one that stood out for me personally, so when I got back home, I was inspired to try and recreate something close here.

I haven't found it here yet, but apparently there are a couple of importers who carry it in the USA: Welcome to The Caledonian Brewery: Overseas Stockists
