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.

It’s still in secondary for another 3 weeks! Plenty of activity in the airlock. Update later.

I decided to try Wee Heavy Scotch Ale and found the wait challenging - 2.5 months in fermenter and four weeks conditioning. Don't lose faith after two weeks - much improved carbonation at four weeks! Plan to try again soon = if kit available.
