In 3 years of homebrewing, I have never wanted to post one of my recipes...until now. I read that Wyeast 1272 really brings out the best in rye and everybody who has used it is right. The rye character in this beer is just about perfect. I used small amounts of Columbus and Chinook and a more generous helping of Glacier to really emphasize spice and herb... the result is a VERY drinkable rye beer at only 4.5% with much of the hop flavor of a RyePA.

I've got more information on brew day and tasting notes over at my blog... I tried this with a deep fried pork belly the other night. Fantastic. Highly recommend.

Thanks for sharing this... I was looking for a Red Rye to brew up for St. Patty's day and keg for the first time ever. This seems like the perfect one to brew...

Edit: Yes, I realize this isn't Irish, but no one has to know...

Well, I'm guilty of a "beginner" move here. I fermented this for two weeks and then cold crashed the primary for 2 days in the upper 30's to drop some of the yeast out of suspension. I then carbed it for a week in my fridge at 38 degrees and drank it. It is GOOD! The first couple glasses were hoppy, probably because I sucked up some of the hops particles that may have been in suspension that sank to the bottom of the keg. HOLY BEER HEAD batman! I carbed and am serving this at 7 psi, which I don't think is too much, and it maintains a head and NICE lacing on the glass from start to finish. This on is on the "re-brew" list for sure! Next time, I'll be more patient and primary for 2 weeks, secondary for 2, and then keg and wait some more. I really want to try this beer though, AND try out my new kegging stuff! If you like a crisp, lightly hopped rye ale, this beer is for you!
