Today I brewed a Scottish Ale for a change. It is part of a yeast trial run by Scottish Craft Brewers, where several of us make the beer with the provided identical ingredients, with only the yeast differing between them. You can see the recipe here, and my one uses Whitelabs Edinburgh Ale WLP 028 liquid yeast. With Munich, Crystal, Chocolate wheat and wheat malts, and a fairly low attenuating yeast, it should have good body and some sweetness, very low bitterness, and end up around 4.3%.

The brewday went well, with a pre-boil efficiency of 96% and brewhouse efficiency of 76%.
