Well, we tasted this one again. Still like it but the family consensus is that the American Ale yeast gives a little bit more tang that made this beer a favorite right off the bat.

So here's a question. I made this on Saturday, and I've never had US-05 rip like this. It filled 2.5 gallons of headspace with foam and spooged yeast out the airlock. I'm not at all worried, but is it the amount of adjuncts? Or just that no fermentation is exactly the same and this just happened to be the one that roared? In my experience, US-05 typically just kind of plods through, nothing to crazy.

Thanks, I'm relaxed! I was only mildly curious if it had something to do with the corn and rye since they're not something I typically use.

I've NEVER had a wild fermentation on this beer. It just happens.

I've been experimenting with US-05 lately and though most fermentations are rather typical and easy going, every once in a while I get one that does something weird.

Just popped one after 2 weeks in the bottle and it is awesome. Light, clean, a little spicy from the rye. Could drink a ton of these. I used Bry-97 and worked great. Thanks for the recipe.

Thank you, I'm happy with how fast it cleared up. I can't describe the taste really. It's smooth and easy haha. I like drinking it and I'm happy with the results.

I brewed this a few days ago. Probably one of the best pre-fermented wort samples I've tasted. Really excited.

I used US-05, pitched at ~70f and it cooled to ~62 overnight in an ice bath, started fermenting ~12-18 hours after pitch and it has had a slight/thin krausen for a few days now.
