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.

Beer review

This was my first time ordering a beer kit from this site and I am pleased with all the easy to follow instructions and the ease of making the beer. I have only made one of the 2 beers I ordered how ever I am anxious to make the second one. Will be ordering more soon.

Just Right!!

I’m a real fan of this beer. I enjoy Scottish Ales a lot and this one really strikes a perfect middle ground. Have brewed this beer twice now and both times it has come out great. It’s a beer that definitely needs to age a bit. One thing that helps in brewing is mixing malt syrup and dry powders in the boiling wort solution in a separate container before adding to the boil pot. Eliminates burning a cuts down a little on boil over.
This definitely a go to beer for me.

Cheers
