60 Shilling Brew Session

Written by Justin on December 16, 2011
After watching BrewingTV’s interview with Kristen England I became very interested in brewing a 60 Shiling Ale. I love session beers and haven’t made many Scottish style ales so after reading up on them for a couple of days I put together a recipe and set out to make it. The video is a montage of my brew day and my new kick ass brew system.

      Thanks Chip! That interview with Kristen was great. He really knows his stuff and is great to listen to. Hope you have him back again as his brewery progresses.

    Wondering where you got those sweet containers for your grain. Are they air tight? Thanks. Cool video. BTW I was sent here by your post over on HBT.

      Vittle Vaults. Yes they are air tight and they are perfect for storing grains. A 55lb sack fits in them great or as you saw we keep bags of specialty grains in another. I picked up ours at Costco but you can also find them online. Thanks for the feedback on the video, it was fun to slow down and try to capture everything. Cheers!

        Saw different sizes available on Amazon.com as well as other places. What size(s) did you buy? I’m starting to buy 50lb sacks of grain as well as buying extra specialty malts, etc. Thanks again for the info.

          We are using the 60lb stackables for our base grains. I’m looking at doing a few smaller ones to sort out our specialty grains into categories i.e. Caramels, Dark Roasts, etc.
