Notes

Kentucky Common is a pre-Prohibition style popular in northern Kentucky and southern Indiana. It's currently kept alive by two brew pubs and homebrewers. The beer is one of three uniquely American beer styles. Since no one really knows what this tasted like, I'll just experiment until I get a beer I like.

Target bitterness is 20 IBU

Ferment at 68 degrees.
