- 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.
Recommended: 2-stage fermentation and yeast starter.

- 5.0 / 5.05 ReviewsWee Heavy All-GrainBeen a while since brew day, but finally cracked the first bottle and was everything I was expecting. After three months in the bottle, it's very good. Am trying to sash some away and give it some more time, based on other reviews. Then again, if I can't make it last, am sure the folks at NB would be glad to brew up another batch. After all, gotta keep my elbow in shape.
Didn't quite make the numbers, ABV coming in a few points low, but I'll take the hit for that.March 8, 2018Purchased

4 months agoAwesome Session Kit....ready for variation as well!This is an awesome recipe-My friends and I favored the deep brown-orange hue yielded by this high gravity wonder. I added Single-malt Scotch steeped oak barrel chips to the secondary for an additional Scottish-smokey finish and have found a winner!
Highly recommend!!February 6, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoWee HeavyNo review yet as it is a "wee" early. Still in secondary and about 3 months to go. EdAugust 19, 2016This is the second timeThis is the second time I have brewed this. The first time it was in the secondary fermentor for a little over two months and in the keg for several more months. It was complex, tasty and the aging hid the high ABV. It was a friend and family favorite going on the seasonal rotation.July 28, 2016
