McRennison's Scottish Ale

Source: Richard Rennison
Recipe added: 04/04/98

This Ale had a very good smokey flavor to it even without any smoked malt. The American brown is a good substitute. I let it condition for about 2 weeks in the bottle before I cracked open the first one (I usually like to wait at least 4 weeks), and it was so good that all of it was gone before any of it conditioned over a month. Next time I will make a 10 gallon batch and not tell any of my friend that I have it!! Let me know what you think...
