Default Scottish Ale

Let me know what you guys think for this one, kind of just made this one up on the fly, going for a partial mash and wanted a nice smokey, malty flavor to this one with low hop and bitterness smell.

Scotish Ale

7lbs Light/Pale Malt Extract Syrup

1lb Peat Smoked Malt

.25lb Cara-Pils(Dextrin) Malt

.25lb Canadian Honey Malt

.25lb Biscuit Malt

.25lb Crystal 60L Malt

.25lb Special B

Irish Yeast

1oz Willamette(30)
1oz Willamette(5)

Also wanted to add some toasted oak chips into my fermentor after all the airlock activity has seized, about 2 oz's of chips. What do you guys think?

WAY WAY WAY too much peat smoked malt. scale that back to like...4 ounces, maybe, and I think you meant .25# not .25oz on everything else.

Even 2 oz of peat malt is a lot. That's the most I ever put in my Scotch Ale.

Most Scottish Ales don't have any, they rely on the yeast to give it that smoky overtone.

Cut the peat out and use more crystal, maybe 0.5 lb of each 60L and Special B, although, Crystal 120 or 150 would maybe be a better grain choice instead of the Special B.

+∞ on the too much peated malt! I was trying a fake Scottish (using dry yeast and peated malt to get the smoky overtones) and 2oz. of peated malt in a 5 gallon batch was still way too much! If I were to try it again I'd probably go 1oz.

I definately wouldn't go over 2 oz of peated malt in a five gallon batch. As you can see by other people's answers, the consensus is to use none or just a tiny bit.

The other ingredients look good - though you may want to try just a touch of roasted barley...though probably not more than two or three ounces.

You might want to try Rauch malt or the new applewood from Briess.
