- Some Scottish historians theorize that Charles Stuart didn't flee Scotland after the failed 1745 uprising; instead, he had a few too many Wee Heavies in the Outer Hebrides and then just sort of woke up in France. History may keep her secrets, but you can share the experience of a Wee Heavy. There's a little Jacobite Revolution in every bottle. These are the very strongest of all Scottish ales, with a garnet-brown hue, profound maltiness and high alcohol content. Our Wee Heavy showcases complex toffee and vinous notes and a restrained hop character. Best imbibed in small doses, this kit continues to develop with age and is great for cellaring.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

- 5.0 / 5.03 ReviewsThis is the second timeThis is the second time I have brewed this. The first time it was in the secondary fermentor for a little over two months and in the keg for several more months. It was complex, tasty and the aging hid the high ABV. It was a friend and family favorite going on the seasonal rotation.July 28, 2016Wee HeavyNo review yet as it is a "wee" early. Still in secondary and about 3 months to go. EdAugust 19, 2016Awesome Session Kit....ready for variation as well!This is an awesome recipe-My friends and I favored the deep brown-orange hue yielded by this high gravity wonder. I added Single-malt Scotch steeped oak barrel chips to the secondary for an additional Scottish-smokey finish and have found a winner!
Highly recommend!!February 6, 2017Purchased
