With water modified toward Edinburgh, Golden Promise will produce any beer style from Scotland, especially Scottish and Scotch ale’s, providing the ale with rich malt. Beginning with a malt bill consisting of 89.4% Golden Promise, 9.1% German Carafoam and 1.5% UK Roasted Barley, complete a mash schedule of 90 minutes at 154F – 158 F. To further enhance the malt backbone, run-off ¼ of the wort following the mash and boil quite vigorously for 25 -30 minutes to caramelize the wort prior to running off the other ¾’s of the total boil volume. Hop with a British hop such as Fuggle or Northdown in a single addition at 60 minutes remaining in the boil. Ferment with Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale Yeast at 55 – 60 F.
