Here is the November Shop brew scaled down to a 5-Gallon batch. It is a Strong Scotch Ale, which is also known as a "Wee-Heavy" and my favorite style of beer. The ingredients used in this brew are not traditionally Scottish, but they fit the flavor profile well. The hopping schedule utilize the Northern Brewer hop variety to bring an earthiness to the beer. There are smoked malts in this recipe even though it is often debated whether or not these flavors and aromas are part of a traditional Wee Heavy, but I like them so this is what you get!
