If you make one, let me know how it turns out. It'll be a while before I'm able to do a Scottish Ale again.

Wyeast 1728 or something along those lines.

I haven't. Haven't been able to brew since before this thread started. Gotta wait until I move to the new house.

Well that doesn't help me live vicariously through your brewing now. I need to find some time to brew but every day just seems to get sucked up.

I am interested in how this turns out though. If you brew it keep us posted. Thanks.

I agree go sparingly with the peat, I used 1oz in a 5 gallon batch and that is enough.

I ended up brewing a spin of this today. I ended up swapping the Munich and Crystal amounts as they list the ingredients on their site by quantity used so I think that it has more Crystal in it. Next time I may put in equal amounts of both. I also used Target instead of Magnum because.. Well I have a butt load of Target I need to use up.

9.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) UK (3.0 SRM) Grain 73.72 %
2.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 75L (80.0 SRM) Grain 8.42 %
1.50 lb Munich Malt II (9.0 SRM) Grain 16.85 %
0.07 lb Peat Smoked Malt (2.8 SRM) Grain 1.01 %
0.30 oz Target [8.60 %] (90 min)
0.50 oz Target [8.60 %] (60 min)
0.25 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (20 min)
0.25 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (10 min)

Beer Profile Estimated Original Gravity: 1.064 SG
Estimated Final Gravity: 1.018 SG
Bitterness: 28.0 IBU
Wyeast 1728

Ended up hitting the OG exactly and the color looks fantastic. With only 1 oz of peat in the grain bill I am not tasting a lot of it just a hint from the sample. I think it will come out more once it ferments out. The picture doesn't to it justice for how red it was.
