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.

Just an awesome beer. Malty undertone. Great flavor.
Rave reviews from my Weekly Friendly Neighborhood Gathering!!
currently in secondary fermentation. will be there for 2 months then will add a yeast to promote bottle conditioning along with priming sugar. Hope it will be strong
I followed the instructions to the word. I even purchased a yeast starter kit. Had plenty of activity from the yeast. Primary fermenter for 1 month, secondary fermenter for 2 months, bottle conditioned for 1 month. Totally flat and almost too sweet to drink. Added yeast to all the bottles and conditioned an additional month. Still flat. Very disappointed.
This is very easy to brew, the hard part is the wait. I still have 4.5 gallons conditioning, but decided to put a splash in my cannonball keg and carb it up to sample it. Huge mistake....because I hear this gets better with age and I am incredibly impatient. The worst part is that this young sample is delicious!
