Description: The old Reinheitsbegot (German Beer Purity Law) forbids the use of rye in beer, to which we say, "NEIN!" This refreshing beer mixes the spiciness of rye with the delightful banana/clove flavors of a hefeweizen, perfect for a hot summer day of 500+ year old rule breaking

  • The recipe calls for "2 Cans Briess Rye Liquid Malt Extract" but it isn't available in the recipe tool.
    ** "Hop-Mod." I altered the recipe to make this a hoppy rye. The original called for 1oz Willamette for 60 mins and 1oz Saaz for 10 min.

    Basic Guidelines:
    Steep the crushed grains in 1.5 gallons of 160-degree water for 30 minutes. Remove and sparge into the boil kettle with the heat off add all extracts and sugars to the kettle and stir to dissolve completely. Carefully bring to a boil, stirring to avoid scorching and watching for boil-overs. Once a rolling boil is complete, remove from heat and begin to cool; an ice bath or a wort chiller helps to bring the temperature down quickly. When the wort is cool, add it to a clean and sanitized fermentor. Add water until the volume is 5 gallons if necessary. Once the wort has dropped to below 80-degrees, aerate well (don't forget to take a hydrometer reading) and pitch the yeast. Attach a blow-off tube and ferment at desired temperature for the yeast strain. Rack to a secondary fermentor when krausen (head of foam) has receded and beer begins to clear. After fermentation and conditioning are complete, bottle or keg your beer. Allow to condition and enjoy!
