Decided to rebrew this beer since it was quite tasty before. I plan to put 3 gallons of this in my portable kegerator for our guys camping trip at East Lake in June.

5/5 – Today was a beatiful day to brew in Bend with the temperature in the low 70s and not a cloud in the sky. Derek stopped by and helped me drink a few beers which helped the brew day to fly by. With the high percentage of rye malt in the grain bill I did run into a bit of a stuck recirculation and had to removed the outlet hose from my MLT and “blow” the blockage off of my bazooka tube. Otherwise the brew day went well and I netted a 71% brew house efficiency. Should be a tasty summer brew!
