I bottled a Scottish Heavy yesterday and looked up to see how much carbonation I needed. The quick way was to look at my BYO Recipe book to see what THEY carbed at.

hmmmmm 3/4 cup (about 5.o 0z) of Corn sugar. geez - that seems like a lot for a Scottish. So I logged onto the Beer Recipator site and see it is more like o.5oz corn sugar (1.0 volumes of CO2).

I'm conflicted! I went with 0.5 oz since it was like an ESB - SO - I looked at BYO ESB carbing and yup - all 3/4 cup.

WHAT UP!!

Why make a clone if you totally screw the carbing.

BYO assumes 'normal' US levels of carbonation, 2.0 - 2.5 volumes. Scottish ales have enough body and malt character to stand up to these volumes without seeming insipid, but I usually carbonate most English/Irish/Scottish ales to no more than 1.5 volumes.
