Recipe: Sheep Drool Brown Ale

Sheep Drool is based off of a Big Sky Brewing Moose Drool clone I found here:  I added more malt to kick up the alcohol, and added some peated malt. (Probably way too much. I’m going to read up on using smoked malts and dial it down.) I add peated malt to most of my beers. It’s a nod to my Scottish ancestry, and I’ve found it adds a nice character. Enjoy!
