This was the first recipe I ever come up with on my own. I only had an idea of what I wanted to brew - a nice light summer beer with a bit of rye flavor in it. I spent an evening reading and finally plugging numbers into Beersmith until I came up with this. I know competition-wise it wouldn't really be classified as a rye ale but this isn't a competition so here it is.

I was very surprised with how this turned out being my first recipe. I'm even more surprised than my friends who are usually stout drinkers have enjoyed this quite a bit.

Overall, the taste is light, refreshing and crisp with a slight hint of spice. I almost want to try changing the 60-minute and 20-minute additions to get more of the sterling flavor in the beer. I plan on brewing another batch or two of this for the summer months.

Looking forward to some feedback, and hoping to hear that someone else tries this. If you're nearby, maybe we can swap a bottle or two.

Do you really boil off 1 1/2 gallons an hour? That's one hell of a stove! I'm envious for sure.

Propane burner, and yeah, depending on the wind it can be worse. For example, yesterday I brewed on a windy day. Pre-boil I was just under 7-gallons. Post 60-minute boil I was just under 5. A few weeks ago - 7-gallons in boiled down to just over 5 1/4 in 60-minutes.

I imagine some what I'l saying is boil-off is really a bit of loss to the hops + chilling but I imagine it's a very small part compared to the actual boil off.
