07/08/2016 Brew Day – Slightly under gravity at 1.050.

14/09/2016 – Still bubbles coming from the airlock!!

15/09/2016 – Bottled with 122g corn sugar (13 litres @ 3.2 vol). Got 12 x 500ml and 9 x 750ml bottles from the batch.

08/12/2016 – Very nice flavour. The rye certainly adds something distinctive, though I’m not sure I’d use the “spicy” descriptor that most beer writers associate with malted rye. Beautiful colour and clarity too.
