Beer Description

Named after Confluence Brewing Company’s neighbor, Gray’s Lake, Nessie features a bill of English Golden Promise malt almost as massive as the enormous Loch Ness itself. We started by boiling about 60 gallons of wort containing malt, a little Special B and roasted barley for color to condense and create caramelized sugars that will survive the fermentation process.
Our brewers then added in the remaining volume of wart and “put the spurs to it” by using maximum pressure to create a boil wilder than even the tallest Loch Ness monster tale. Adding English East Kent Golding balances the sweetness and cool fermenting with Scottish ale yeast completes the transformation of Nessie from a terrifyingly boiling monster into a beloved Scottish ale friend.
