Notes

This is my take on Greg Noonan’s 120 Shilling Scotch Ale (pg. 117-118) made with ingredients I have on hand. I plan to simply drain and pull the mash at the end and move it to a second tun and add more water for 5 gallons of Two Penny Ale. I will preheat a boil kettle and pour in my first running to carmelize them, per Noonan’s directions.

Noonan, Greg. Scotch Ale, Brewer’s Publicstions, 1993.
