Notes

Ferment for 7 days at 70 degrees.
Transfer to secondary and leave until fermentation stops.
Dry hop with 1 oz. Citra for 5 days.
Cold crash 3 days with 1 tsp. Gelatin mixture (optional)
Remove from fridge, warm overnight, prime, bottle, and condition for 21 days.

This recipe is a mash-up of two excellent beer styles: Amber Ale and Rye Ale. The Amber Ale brings a malty flavor, medium to medium-full body, and a rich amber color, while the Rye brings a distinctive spicy grain note. The hop flavor on this beer is noticeable with a spicy hop character, with a noticeable hop bitterness. Definitely a beer to enjoy throughout the fall season.

Enjoy!
