Default Low Gravity Rye Wit

I brewed the Rye Wit that was recommended as a low gravity beer, and my mash efficiency fell a tad short. Looks like is finishing out at about 2%........ which is OK by me. Used Mosaic hops...... What a nice hop! The first brew with Mosaic. I'll use them again.

This is a unique beer for me............. With 10 brews under my belt.... I'm still a new brewer...... at least this time around, this is the very first that even remotely followed someone's recipe. I didn't use the Fuggles, only Mosaic, and brewed for about 16 IBU instead of the 10 or so of the original recipe.

This seems to be a very light delicate flavored beer, one that would be good for experimenting with. I'll probably make a sour out of the next batch, as I got enough "makings" for 2 2.5 gallon batches. I'll go very light on the hops, and do a sour mash. I'll be crashing and bottling this sometime next week. Looking forward to trying this.
