Let's Brew Wednesday - 1885 William Younger 100/-

The best thing about 100/- is that there’s no modern beer with same name to cause confusion.

It took me a while to get my head around Scottish styles. Especially the Shilling Ales. Then I realised that they are just Ales. The weaker ones being Mild Ales, the stronger ones Stock Ales. It’s really that simple.

100/- is very similar to 60/- and 80/-, just a bit stronger. Three types of malt, with a little less than half made from Scottish barley, the rest from foreign. All very simple. It’s not going to last. By the end of the century Younger’s grists would look very different.

The hopping rate is about the same as for 60/- and 80/-. Consisting of Kent, Californian, Spalt and American, all from the 1884 crop.
