Extract with Specialty Grains Homebrew Kit
The German Rye has a light to medium body and a color profile of straw to a dim golden hue. Flavors of rye scream across your palate as a little malt back bone appears. Makes 5 gallons, or approximately 48 bottles of beer.
Ingredients included in this kit (Please note: only use the amount recipe calls for as some ingredients may have extra):
- Malt Base: 6 lb Amber Liquid Malt Extract
- Speciality Grains: 2 lb Rye Malt, 12 oz Caramel 60L
- Hops: 1 oz Nugget (Bittering); 1 oz Ahtanum (Aroma)
- 3 large Muslin Bags
Recommended Yeast (NOT INCLUDED IN KIT):
Wyeast 1007 German Ale
Safale US-05 Dry Yeast
We highly recommend purchasing dry yeast during the warmer months. While we offer a complimentary ice pack with all liquid yeast orders, the combination of warmer temperatures and shipping times makes it difficult for your liquid yeast to remain chilled.
Don't let the name fool you, this is an excellent brew. I asked my wife and the neighbors to try this one not telling them what it was along side another beer and asked them what they thought. Their replies on this one was "wow, that is a really good beer, and we don't like anything rye". Then I told them what it was and they asked for more. It is a really smooth great easy drinking beer.
