Product details

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. 

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

Wee heavy kit

This kit’s a keeper. Complex malt from the steeping grains and vigorous fermentation from the optional liquid Scottish ale yeast. We did a yeast starter in a flask with two yeast packs and two cans of Fast Pitch. Resting in secondary now but alcohol’s around 8.25%.

Wee Heavy looks good so far

First time brewing this beer. Everything has gone good so far. Has been conditioning for two weeks. According to the instructions it should sit for another six weeks. They send out these reviews too early in the process to give an accurate review. They need to read the instructions to see when bottling is to take place and then send out the email. I anticipate that this will be a good brew.
