Red Macgregor is a unique beer: delicate and sophisticated yet the robust cask conditioned version of this beer was the first Scottish beer to win the BIIA World Cask Beer Gold Medal.
On the nose, this ruby-red beer is delicate, floral and fruity, with notes of violets, cherries, toffee and caramel.
On the palate, the fruits combine with a juicy malt character and hints of toasted malt, with a biscuit malt and spicy hop finish.
Crystal and chocolate malt give this beer its distinctive ruby-red colour, and its backbone of toasted malt flavour; Cascade hops, rarely found in darker beers, give the floral, perfumed fruitiness
Any help is appreciated
Here is a shot??
7lbs Marris Otter
1.5lbs Munich Malt
.50lb Crystal ~60
.25lb Chocolate Malt (350 not 500)
Bullion .75 oz - 60 min Spicy
Fuggles .50 oz - 30 min Floral
Cascade .50 oz - <2 min Cascady?
I would imagine that you would have to throw some cherries in there I would probably throw a little bit of cherry extract in at flameout and then maybe do some secondary fermentation with cherries if you want??
I tried to stay within the Scottish Export 80 guidelines for alcohol and IBUs, but I am not sure what the ABV was and if that was even the style...but this sounds good to me...
