Default Extract - Barking Dog Scottish Ale by Jeff Niggemeyer

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: Wyeast 1098 Brit Ale
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.052
Final Gravity: tbd
IBU: 14
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 days at 64 degrees
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days at 60 degrees
Tasting Notes: the initial tasting going into primary was pretty malty.

this is my first brew!


this is a recipe i got out of a recent zymurgy magazine. it was a gabf gold medal winning scottish ale brewed by jeff niggemeyer. he called it "barking dog scottish ale".

these are the ingredients i used. i followed his recipe exactly (except i added a handful of oats)....

7.25 lbs unhopped light male extract (i used 4 lbs mountmellick and 3.25 lbs muntons)

steeping grains......
4 oz weyermann smoked malt L 1.3-2.3
8 oz muntons dark crystal malt L 146-165
2 oz roasted barley
handful of oats

1.75 oz uk fuggles alpha 4.0%

wyeast 1098 brit ale

1/4 tsp irish moss


i steeped the grains at 154 degrees for 30 minutes in 2 gallons of spring water. over the course of the 30 minutes, the temperature dropped to 148 degrees. i killed the heat and sparged the grains with about 1/2 gallon of 170 degree water. i added the liquid malt extract and stirred it in well. cranked up the heat. i didn't get a hot break until i added the hops. i boiled for 60 minutes and then transferred into an ice bath for 15 minutes. i added about a 1/2 gallon of refrigerator cold water into the wort about 10 minutes into the cooling process. i transferred the wort into the primary adding refrigerator cold water until i got to 5 gallons.

OG 1.052

photos below.

i'll update the thread with photos and info as the process goes.

thanks for looking.

Looks like a winner. Good to see you starting the young ones off right in life.

A little manual labor never hurt anyone.

i bottled this beer two weeks ago this past wednesday and popped the first one open last night. it carbonated very nicely. the taste was very clean and a bit sweet without being cloying.

an update on this beer.....

i bottled it about three weeks ago. i drank the first one about a week ago and it carbonated very nicely. carbonation has continued to improve i've noticed over the past few bottles.

the beer is slightly sweet and carmelized with a bit of smokiness. there is a touch of nuttiness to it as well. the hop character is VERY faint, but not non-existant.

overall, this beer seems to be getting better everyday. i'll post some more notes after i drink a few more.

i think this would make a very nice session beer and would pair very well with summery cookout type foods.

nice work! recipe looks simple & tasty.

any chance we can get a shot of the beer in a pint glass? Seeing a thick brown head on a dark beer like this basically equates to beer porn for me.

again - nice work. especially for your first brew.
