Wee Hottie

MEMBERS ONLY
Kuyler Doyle’s “Wee Hottie” took second place behind the ZEALOTS entry. Kuyler’s choice was dictated by the style’s primary ingredient. “I thought the malty sweet character of a Scotch ale would pair well with spicy heat from chiles,” states Kuyler. “Since Scotch ales are allowed to have a smoky flavor, I went with that as the link. I added some rauch malt to the blend and used smoky chipotle peppers for the heat and flavor.” Like the ZEALOTS, Kuyler did a spinoff of a 5- gallon (19-L) batch. The recipe below has the peppers scaled up for full a 5-gallon (19-L) batch.

Broughton Black Douglas clone

MEMBERS ONLY
Dark caramelized fruit, bready malt, and treacle fill out the flavors of this beer. The finish dries out just enough to highlight the deep malt character. A unique take on the Scottish 80/- style that may even be better with a touch of smoky Scotch whiskey added to it.

Bannockburn Amber Ale

MEMBERS ONLY
I call this brew Bannockburn Amber Ale in honor of the battle in which King Robert the Bruce secured Scotland’s independence. It’s not a completely traditional Scotch ale but it’s close enough. - Michael W. Martin Canton, Texas
