  • 1 lbs Caramel Malt 60L; Briess

    Caramel Malt 60L; Briess

    Sweet, pronounced caramel flavor. Characteristics & Applications: • In contrast to Brewers Malt, glassiness is a distinguishing characteristic of Caramel Malt. The glassy endosperm creates the desirable non-fermentable components giving true Caramel Malt the ability to contribute body (mouthfeel), foam, foam retention, and extended beer stability, while contributing color and unique caramel flavor. • 2-Row Caramel Malt 60L is a roasted caramel malt that imparts deep golden to red color. • Use 3-7% for Pilsener-style beers for balance. • Use 5-15% to provide color, sweetness and color to amber and red beers. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

  • 0.125 lbs Peat Smoked Malt

    Provides a deep golden to brown color. Use in nut brown ales, IPAs and Scottish ales.

  • .5 lbs Cara-Pils® Malt; Briess

    Cara-Pils® Malt; Briess

    Characteristics & Applications: • The endosperm is completely glassy and will appear to be darker than standard Brewers Malt. • Carapils® is a very unique dextrine-style malt that adds body, foam retention, and beer stability without influencing color or flavor. • Use to upgrade all types of beer, including light colored beers. • The non-fermentables in Carapils® are very advantageous in balancing body and flavor of dark colored beers. • May be used with or without other specialty malts. • Low usage of 1-5% will help achieve desired results. • Produced from AMBA/BMBRI recommended 2-Row Malting Barley varieties.

It didnt turn out at all. I need to remove this recipe actually. Not sure what went wrong but it tasted horrible. Good luck finding another Belhaven clone though. Cheers!

You may want to eliminate the peated malt all together. The Scotch Ale yeast usually gives off the kind of smokiness you may be looking for after aging for a bit. The longer you age it the better it tastes. Trust me on this. Use crystal 120L and maybe some Special B next time around .5 lb. Remembe too, if you ever use Molasses, use the un-sulfured type. No Black Strap.
