I am hoping someone can help me develop a clone recipe for a beer I had at the Pelican Pub & Brewery on the Oregon coast. It is a Scotch Ale and was pure heaven to drink. I have never tried to make a start from scratch clone before so I wouldn't even know where to start. I think the thing that is really messing with me is the " half the water and twice the boiling time" part? To me it would mean in order to make a 5 gallon batch twice the amount of grain and probably a two hour boil? Anyway here is the listing I found on their web site.
Thanks In advance,
MacPelican's Wee Heavy - Available on Draft & in Bottles.
Our version of the "Wee Heavy" Strong Scotch Ale style is literally a batch of MacPelican's Scottish Ale brewed with half the water and twice the boiling time to create a beer with a massive malty flavor and a deep red color. The aroma hints of rich caramel, cocoa, toffee, and tropical fruit, with a full-bodied mouthfeel and a velvety sweet, slightly dry finish. A robust beer with a dangerous, drinkable smothness!
