Caledonian 80/- Style recipe Kit


A recipe pack containing all the ingredients to make a clone, all grain version of Caledonian 80/-

A predominantly malty, copper-coloured beer with underlying fruit. A Scottish heavy that now lacks the complex taste and hoppiness of old. The name referes to eighty-shillings. Sometimes called slash-dash, presumably  by those who were born after 1971 and have no idea what a shilling was.
This recipe is based on the latest edition of Graham Wheeler's  book, "Brew your own British Real Ales" and is the 23 litre version.
