Mash Schedule

Yeast: WYEAST Scottish Ale 1728 Scottish Ale Rich, smokey, peaty character ideally suited for scottish style ales, smoked beers and high gravity ales. Flocculation - high; apparent attenuation - 69-73%. (55-70F) Notes: Remove two gallons of first runnings and boil down to about 1 pint and add back to boil. This will give the richer taste that you find in this fine beer. Collect 15 gallons of Run-off and boil down to your 10 1/2 gallon target (the other 1/2 gallon will come from the 1/2 gallon starter of yeast slurry that you have made in advance). Add 2-3 teaspoons of Irish Moss into the boil just because. Traquar is the finest of all Scottish Ales. Their recipe is pretty easy and straight forward. 99% Pale Ale Malt, 1% Roasted Barley and 35-37 IBU's. I have found this to be the common thread for this brew after reviewing about 30-40 recipes from Homebrewers that have cloned this brew. About 1/2 of the recipes claimed that Traquar uses East Kent Goldings as the hop and the Other claim that Northern Brewer is the Hop. I chose Northern Brewer because I am very fond of them as base hops. I hope you like the recipe and if you brew it please let me know how it turned out and any changes that you have made.
