Uisge Bethea II
General Information
Method: All Grain

src: http://www.skotrat.com/skotrat/Recipe_Exchange/REC/Uisge%20Bethea%20II.rec

Quantities listed are what were recorded in ProMash as what I used.  I estimated I'd get 55% efficiency and ended up getting 60%.  It came in at 32.6 IBUs, 1.090 OG, 1.025 FG, 8.65% abv.  I initially bottled the batch with Coopers carbonation drops, but they didn't work after a couple of years, so I hooked up the counterpressure bottle filler in reverse to transfer the beer from bottles to a keg so I could force-carbonate it.
