McEwan's Scotch Ale

Postby jimsmasonry » Thu Mar 08, 2012 5:17 pm

I know it's been asked before but it has been awhile & the answers seemed ify so I thought I'd ask again. Does anyone have a dead ringer recipe for (my favorite) McEwan's Scotch Ale (grain preferably)?
Does anyone know if it can be purchased in the U.S. anymore?

Thanks so much, Jim.

I haven't seen McEwan's Scotch for quite some time. The brands have been acquired by another brewery recently from what I understand, so who knows...we may see it again.

If you're looking to reproduce it, all I can say is mash at a higher temp, aim for a high OG, and use a yeast that will finish at a higher FG.

While not totally "authentic", you also might want to add a good proportion of dark Munich malt to your grist to achieve the requisite 'malty' character. And go easy on the hops. Use less than you even think you should.
