Default Hop Rod Rye

Well, I recieved all my ingredients to brew the Hop Rod Rye recipe I got from here, and also bought a 9 gallon italian kettle with spigot, and the dual cooler mash/lauder tun with sparging arm.

I really like the set up and everything went like clockwork. The sparging system works like a dream and I collected a perfect amount of sweet dark wort for my boil. I used all whole hops and MAN there were a lot for this recipe. I love the aroma!

Anyway, its fermenting away and doing great. This is going to be a batch I cant wait to taste.

If you dont mind, send links to your new kettle and any opinions you have on it. I am in the market for one

Oh, and while your at it, since your raving about the sparge arm, if you have a link to that too... I will need one eventually for my a.g. setup!

Woohoo! You're stoked, Tony! We're going to dry hop batch two this weekend and maybe brew another batch of that stuff. Batch one is still in the secondary, aging to perfection. Keep us posted on how yours turns out. Cheers!

All of it was from MoreBeer.com (Free Shipping over $49.00)

All Grain System
Sparge arm is the usual

9 Gallon Kettle
The picture of the kettle is of a larger capacity, but is the same construction.

I just racked it to the secondary tonight and wow is it going well. What an awesome recipe. Plus, being an all grain recipe, I can see a big difference in quality.

I cant wait for this one to be done!!!

Make sure you give it enough time after dry hopping to round out all the corners. My first batch just passed a month, and I think it still has some rough edges. The bitterness is incredible! My wife is especially excited about this one, but I bet she'll only be able to drink about a pint as strong as it is.

Keep us posted on yours. I'll be kegging mine soon and I'll let you know what it's like. Cheers!

So how long do you think I should keep it in the secondary before bottling?

Hard to say for sure...I'd let it go at least 2 weeks. Let's see, for my first batch I did:

primary - 1 week
secondary - 2 weeks with dry hop
tertiary - 2 weeks (removed from dry hops)

I'm gonna keg it this weekend. You could go less time because it'll age in the bottle, but in general beers this big are better with at least 6 weeks or so from brewing. All kinds of good things happen if you let the beer batch age, removed from trub and yeast cake. Let your taste buds be your guide.

Is that standard for dry-hopping; the two-week secondary and a tertiary? Or is that particular to this recipe? My Saaz and Mt. Hood hop experiment batches have dry-hopped for a week in secondary, and I was going to bottle 'em up this weekend....
