Strong Scottish Ale

Did I mention the strong Scottish ale that I brewed recently? On December 6th, I mashed in almost nine gallons of water with over thirty pounds of malt. The result will hopefully be one big ass beer chock full of all my favorite malty flavors. I may let this one sit in the conical for a few weeks if I don't get my brew on soon. I have been missing my chocolate stout lately, and think this may be the next brew on the docket. I should get my lager on because the cold room in the basement has been hovering at 53f.
Maybe, just maybe one or two more brew sessions before the end of the year. Billy and his family arrive in a few weeks, and I bet I can get him to help me out with a year end brew.
