Did you break down and try an early bottle??

I'm brewing this tomorrow. Pretty psyched for it. Got it as a Christmas present. Been typing the recipe into beersmith for the last hour or so.

Let us know how it turns out!!

Tried one today (shame on me only 12 days in bottle) and it is fricken awesome! Still light on carbonation but it is smooth and malty with none of the bite my earlier brews had. Can't wait till this one is fully carbed and conditioned!
This is the first time I used a yeast starter and campden tabs to treat the water (they use chloramine here).

Is it to early to say this one will in my regular rotation?

Never to early... well, maybe sometimes haha. Brewed my kit today... completely forgot the irish moss tablets... but, it was a double brew day for me and a buddy and when we couldnt find any in my apartment for his IPA, I felt only slightly better about forgetting it before haha.

Scotch ale is on the left... imperial IPA on the right :-)

All the comments on it says it really gets good 4- 6 weeks bottle conditioning, can't imagine it getting better but looking forward to it.
Looks like you had a nice brewday. I left my scotch ale in primary 4 weeks in a swamp cooler to keep temps in low 60s first 2 weeks then let get to upper 60s.
I was going to brew yesterday but SWMBO got the flu real bad so i postponed it to monday

It's gonna be tough to be patient with this one. It was already chugging along when I woke up this morning. I realized, this brew day was the most efficient ever for me. BeerSmith gave me an est. OG of 1.063... I ended up with 1.066 in the fermenter before pitching. Now, I just gotta figure out how I managed to do that. I forgot to take the pre-boil gravity to see what I pulled out of the mash unfortunately.
