For far too long I have been absent from this blog. Today is the next step in a new era of my beer making. Today, if it has indeed survived secondary, will be the first time I've bottle a pale ale that contains rye malt. As I did not have the time for a full grain recipe, this one is made from extract with the rye steeped as a specialty grain.
When brewing, the spice of the rye was very noticeable. I also used whole hops exclusively during brewing and in the secondary. This too is a new first for me.
It is now time to start the sanitizing process and get to racking. I will post the recipe and thoughts later.
