Scottish Wee Heavy Extract Beer Recipe Kit
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. Click here for more info.

This is my second whack at this; it would contribute immensely to my needed clarification in the issue of inventory in the SCOTTISH WEE HEAVY kit per the "Instructional Document" included---- if you, NB, would send out a document WITH A DATE which confirms or disconfirms what the exact contents should have been or are with exact labeling per each item.

Never thought I would have a problem with northern brewing but I was confused when reading instructions and it was asking for 2 of the 6lb syrup but it came with 5lb of powder dme . They need to up date the instructions. If i wouldn't of read the reviews I would have been wondering. Not brewed yet but can't wait .
And everything was there. I brewed it. So I would say a successful transaction overall but we won't know for a bit as it is still fermenting but you ask me for my opinion over and over again rather than letting that ferment as well so there you have it.
Not sure what's going on at Northern Brewer, but they're having an issue keeping up with customer service questions. Be aware, the kit has been updated to include 5 pounds of DME in place of 6 lbs Gold malt syrup, but the instructions don't reflect the change. Use the 5 pounds of DME as the late addition add (took 3 days to get a response back from NB on that one!).
