This was an attempt to clone Big Rock's Magpie Rye Ale. Considering I haven't had one in six years and they haven't made it in five years it's all just a guess.

But in my mind this is close.

In future I'll be massaging this recipe. Right now I'd say it needs a bit more rye. Of course there's only one way to know for sure and that's by going too far. I'll let you know when I get there.


The Final Gravity was 1.017 not 1.057 (mhmm, that's some good tasting wort).
How do you edit those inputs?
