OG: 1.065

ABV: 6.8%

-9.5 lbs Briess 2-row
-0.5 lb Briess Munich 10L
-0.5 lb Gambrinus Honey Malt
-0.25 lb Crisp Pale Chocolate
-0.25 lbs Briess Caramel 120
-1 lb Briess Caramel 40
-1 lb honey (added at end of boil)

-0.8 oz Northern Brewer 8.8%AA 60 min

-11.5g Safale S-05

-Dried Heather tips, 0.5 oz additions at 30, 15, 5 minutes, and in the fermenter.

We struck the grains with 3.75 gallons of 172.4F water to reach a mash temperature of 158F. Mashed for 60 minutes, then sparged our grains with 2.5 gallons of 175F water for 20 minutes. After combining the first runnings with the sparge, we boiled for 60 minutes, with the single bittering hop addition. However, halfway into the boil it was heather time! This stuff smells so gloriously honeyish and aromatic! Additions at 30, 15, 5 minutes, and "dry-heathering" lent this brew an amazing complimentary taste to the already sultry Scottish Export flavor.

Primed with 2.1 oz corn sugar for 1.75 volumes of CO2.

Back from dead post!

Anyone know where to get some seeds, or cuttings from Heather?

Not "false" Heather or "Mexican" Heather.

Corned Beef............The other pink meat.
