I am trying my hand at an extract based Strong Scotch Ale. How does this sound? It is scaled for a 5.5 US gallon batch with a 90 minute boil. According to Beersmith, it falls within range of a Strong Scotch Ale. However, I have never before brewed anything with such a high OG.
My plan is to prep it this coming weekend, do a single stage fermentation for a couple of weeks, into a corny keg with maybe 2 volumes of CO2 served at 54F. However, I do not plan on drinking it until mid-December!
I'd appreciate any thoughts or opinions.
