Default Sam Adam's Scotch Ale

This might be the best beer I have ever had, does anyone know of a clone recipie for extract and steep grains?

Is Scotch Ale the same as Scotish Ale?

Not exactly. Scotch ale comes from Belgium. Scottish Ale comes from Scotland. They are similar in many ways, but they are differnt styles.

When most people think of Scotch ale, they actually are referring to 'Scottish Ale'. Belgian Scotch Ales are hard to find - at least I've never seen them and only recently knew they even existed. Cetainly never had one!

Here's more info on the style
The Sammy version is a Scottish Ale. One of my favotire styles. Here's a McTarnahan's clone that you might like. And you can certianly try your hand at my Scotch Ale recipe!

Thanks, I found this at Austin home brew. http://www.austinhomebrew.com/product_info.php?cPath=178_21_46_43_262&products_i d=2072

Do you guys know if thier extract kits have steeping grains or is that the mini mash?

I'll read over the links you provided, thanks.

Better not tell Greg Noonan or anyone in Scotland!

This is a good read if you want to really understand the style of beer

Saying that Scotch Ales come from Belgium (although there are some made there) is like saying that Pilseners originated in the USA.
