Default All-Grain - Moylan's Kiltlifter Scottish Ale Clone

Moylans Kiltlifter Scottish Ale Clone

This recipe is based on the grain bill emailed to me from Moylans brewery in Novato, California. I think it was a good first attempt at recreating their awesome scottish ale, but it likely lacks some malty/caramel characteristics present in Moylans version

Grain Bill:

American two row- 10 lbs
Crystal malt 70L- 10oz
Crystal malt 120L- 10oz
Vienna Durst- 8oz
Munich- 8oz
Special B- 5oz
carapils- 8oz

Mash Schedule: 153 degrees for 1 hr
Mash out at 170 for 5 min

Fly sparge with 168 degree water
collected 6.5 gallons pre-boil

Boil Schedule:

Total Time: 70 min
1st addition at 10 min: 1.5oz Kent Goldings (4-6%)
2nd addition at 55 min: 0.5oz Kent Goldings (4-6%)


Yeast: White Labs 001- California Ale yeast

This looks like a good recipe to me. It is very close to the recipe for the Wee Heavy I sent to the NHC this year. I will have to dig it up and compare.

I just made this, upped the grain bill by 25%... Hit a 1.079 OG, to stay authentic to the alcohol percentage. I did some research about this clone and it appears to be authentic to the actual Moylans Kiltlifter!!!!

I made some of my own additions to this, I went with Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale yeast and added 4oz'z of brittish chocolate malt.

Do you think Marris Otter would add that Caramel Malty flavor that was missing?

It's been over an year, but I think I added Marris Otter to mine... Not sure, I did slightly deviate on this recipe. I will have to check my notes and see what I did... But I do know this is a winner!

To be honest I am just now playing with MO. I have been doing a complete swap of reg2row for MO 2row and my latest batch of amber is my best yet. Which is not say alot as I am newer to all grain and just now starting to deviate from recipes. I will try it out both ways if possible this summer for fun and see.

Just had some Kilt Lifter last night and I loved it: a Wee Heavy without the boozy taste! I am going to take Hurricane's comments into consideration and tweak tborgman's recipe a bit. I'd like to see the difference that WLP001 California will yield as opposed to WLP028 Edinburgh. We'll see!
