Tomorrow morning I will begin the brew of a, can we call it a rye? It will be a rye and wheat hybrid but rye will be the predominant of the two grains. I am anxious to get this one underway. It isn’t the first time I have used rye in a beer but it is the first time using as much as I will be using for this brew.
This will also be the first brew day of the new sparging set up. All sorts of new toys to play with tomorrow, I kinda feel like a kid at Christmas.
Without going into too much detail yet, I will say that I will be using German hops with this one. But I am not using a German yeast strain. I actually am set to use my old stand by of WLP 0013 London ale. I am looking for the malt and the hops to outshine the effects of the yeast itself. Should be an interesting beer when its done.
Now, time for a pint…
