Just Brewed: Fiddy Fiddy Rye

13 Jun

This is an American-style Rye beer brewed with 50% malted Rye. The Rye malt adds a dry, crisp character to beer and some perceived spiciness. Typically it is used in amounts of 10-15%, but I decided to use Rye for half the malt base (hence, Fiddy Fiddy). This is more of a ratio used for wheat beers. Personally, I like a little uniqueness in the flavor and I’m a big fan of Rye whiskey. When I’ve had Rye beers before—such as Hop Rod Rye—I often wish there was more Rye flavor in the beer. So, I’m giving this a go. I figure, if it’s too much, we can always pull it back next time. But sometimes More is More.
