Rebrewed finally in an attempt to find a light summer beer:

6.0 lbs six row
1.5 lbs rye malt
1.5 lbs flaked corn

.50 centennial @ 60
.50 oz cascade @ FWH
.50 oz cascade @ 10
.50 centennial dry hop

OG: 1.043
FG: 1.009
IBU: 24

Should be light (by my standards), dry, and crisp. In the secondary now. Will advise in about (30) days.

Any luck there? How'd it come?

The schedule sounds amazing and i think I'd like to throw this together maybe over the weekend. It'll be a bit late by the time this is ready but in my mind there's nothing better than light and crisp.

Brewing this this weekend. Changing hops to Simcoe and Amarillo, I've heard such great things about that combo and it seems like a good time to find out!

Looks good. Going to make this soon to have for wedding in April. I'm liking the rye flare to the light beer. Any idea how some Saaz hops would go with this brew? Just bought a pound of them

Brewed this up today. Mashed in at 153 for 90 minutes, collected 7.75 gal of wort, boiled 90 minutes. (After thinking about this, it may turn out a little more bitter than expected because of the FWH.) Boiled down to 5.5 gal, but OG was a little low at 1.040. Assuming poor efficiency in my AG setup, though my last batch was at 80%. Will let you know how it all turns out in a couple weeks.

Racked to secondary today, hydro reading 1.004! Smells wonderful, sample tasted a little dry and bitter. Dry hopping secondary, will keg in 1 week. Updates to follow.

Tasted first sample last night. The color was a pale yellow (Coors/Miller/Bud), no redness from the rye though. The hop aroma is wonderful. The taste is a little harshly bitter (probably from my FWH and long 90min boil). Also further complicated by the dry finish (1.004FG due to long 90min mash) and spicyness from the rye malt. It was also over carbonated (I had forgot my regulator was set to 18). Seemingly mistake after mistake with this one...but it's still drinkable. I'll make this again, with a 50 minute mash @ 154, and only a 60 minute boil. Also increase the rye bill to 3#.

Yeah, seems like the dry bitterness is from the fact you over attenuated. 154 will help that out big time. I almost always do a 90min boil and never have issues with that part. Also do you alter your water? Light beers are usually affected more by poor water.

BTW this beer was AWESOME!!
