Grain bill is per reported amounts for O'Dell 90 Shilling on NB forums. Hops bill changed around from the Cascades that is reported to be in 90s because I like Willamette. WLP028 used to accentuate malt character. Remember, O'Dell's 90 Shilling isn't 90 shilling, or even a real Scottish ale, due to their use of Cascades and their usual ale yeast.

OG 1.062 at 60F.

This was brewed as a no-chill beer, but the hops were used as for a "standard" beer chilled post-boil. That is: hops were added on schedule as shown, but the beer was racked into a sanitized corny keg and held for 24 h, allowing the wort to cool naturally. 1/2 gallon of wort was reserved for real wort starter, used on stir plate for 24 h and then pitched at high krausen. Fermented 2 weeks in glass, starting at 64F, allowing to ramp to 70 F after five days. Racked under CO2 to keg, aged three days at 72F, then crash-chilled, gelatin fined, and force carbonated.

This beer comes out a beautiful malty copper color, lots of malt character, but enough bitterness to keep it from being over-sweet. I've brewed it several times now, and it's popular with friends, visitors, and myself. If you control the ferment well and pitch plenty of healthy yeast, it's crystal-clear and ready to drink as soon as three weeks after brewday.

I like the Chinook - Willamette pairing, I may try this in my next Scottish.

I am going to have to brew this one up. Looks really tasty! I might not do the 24 hr natural chill and just use my wort chiller.

so the first round of hops don't go in until 20 minutes left in the boil?
