This was an experiment brew. I Started out with 1/4 lb of Rye malt. After 4 batches... 1lb of Rye malt seems to be just right. The Colombus is powerful,the Cascade adds a nice citus aroma, and the Rye malt makes it taste like a loaf of old world Rye bread with a bite. Because of secondary in the frig this brew is crystal clear. A request of some friends who own local bars, wanted me to brew this for them. But, because I don't have $100k to start a micro it will have to remain between "you" and my brewing buddies. Enjoy!!
