Recipe Type: All Grain    Yeast: Scotish Ale (Wyeast 1728)    Yeast Starter: 1000ml    Batch Size (Gallons): 5    Original Gravity: 1.065    Final Gravity: 1.015    IBU: 27    Boiling Time (Minutes): 90    Color: 16.5    Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 28    Tasting Notes: Could maybe drop to .03 lbs to better match the original but I like it slightly more   
I made this again a few weeks ago and think it is pretty spot on in taste. The peat is present but not over powering.

Brew day was smooth. I bumped up the recipe to a 11 gallon batch, and ended the day with a 1.064 wort. I pitched a big starter and got crazy blow off with the 1728 yeast. It is also quite flocculant. Its only been 2 days and the krausen has dropped and the top of the beer is starting to clear up. I fermented with temp control @67 and started raising temps today to finish it out. Im looking forward to this one.

I took a keg out to Oregon country fair and people dug it. The peat was quite subtle. Not really my favorite style of beer, but my brother liked it and that's what mattered most. I didn't have a actual bottle of kilt lifter to compare it to so I cant really comment there. Thanks for the recipe!

First brew in 5 years! Despite a few hiccups, it turned out fine! A nice session beer! I was going for a smokier taste so I doubled the peated malt, but I still have a hardtime tasting it... Next time I'm smoking half of the pale malt.

Yeah, the peat isn't meant to stand out really strongly. Just enough to register and give it a slight peak taste to go with everything else.

And it does! In fact I think too much smokey taste wouldn't fit well, you're right. Maybe I'll go for a heavier beer next time to go with my smoke addiction...
