Notes

6/2 – Brew day went smoothly and I hit both my volumes and anticipated OG dead on. This wasn’t an easy feat considering how much of a hop bomb this beer was with the large quantity of hops soaking up a lot of the wort. This beer will be right at 100 IBUs without the dry hop additions, but hopefully some of the rye characteristics will still shine through.
