Flat 12 Bierwerks 12 Penny Scottish Ale Extract Kit

A perfect choice for those that want a full flavored, low alcohol beer so you can have a couple. The Scottish Ale yeast has a pretty wide fermentation temperature range so we fermented at 58F and lagered the beer for 6 weeks. It has a slight maltiness, but also as a nice clean finish from the lengthy cold storage. Flat 12 brewer Rob Caputo collaborated with us on this session ale with plenty of flavor. A commercial hit when Flat 12 introduced it.

The Daddy Mac Scottish Ale Extract Kit

The Daddy Mac is our answer to a malty, smooth Scottish ale!

Porter Call Me A Taxi Extract Kit

This recipe has stood the test of time. First brewed over 13 years ago and has been a Great Fermentations standard ever since.
