So I had to do little reading to figure out what you meant by Scottish 70. If I am right you mean schilling right? But I could find sources that were close or agreed what do 70mean in this thread?

I think generally we're talking about 70/-, or 70 shilling as it's defined in the BJCP Guidelines.  That's what I mean anyway.

I'm planning to brew something very similiar based on JZ's award winning recipe next weekend. What temp did you pitch and ferment? Also what was your OG and FG on this recipe?  Thanks Tom.
Probably pitched around 65F and fermented at whatever. :)  OG was 1.037 and FG was 1.005.  might have been a touch low on my mash temp ;)

I'll also note that JZ uses the following %'s for his specialty malt additions regardless of gravity.

14.4% Crystal 40L            
7.2% Honey Malt 18L
3.6% Crystal 120L
2.7% Pale Chocolate malt 200L
I must have misheard that recipe show - I would have sworn he said he keeps the weights of the specialty malts the same and adds more base malt for different OG's.

Good to know.


I actually got the grist bill from JZ's "Brewing Classic Styles"
