Brewed this a few weeks ago and took to a party last weekend. HUGE hit. I brought 4 kegs with me and this one was by far the favorite.

This recipe sounds pretty tasty. I was intending on doing a Scottish ale for my next batch but may have to go this direction. Any ideas on how to bump this up into a Wee Heavy/Scottish parti-gyle?

Last 5 minutes of the boil. That's enough time to dissolve and sanitize it...

Great, thanks so much for the info. I'm going to try this next weekend.
Which do you use, light or dark brown sugar?
