  • It all started with a Mr. Beer kit. After a year or two of having my first job after college I had some money and realized that I need to start brewing a little better than cheap plastic bottles with twist off tops.

    Rye just adds a little spicyness to the malt flavor, should go fine with any kind of hops. Many
    different Rye IPAs out there, different hop profiles and all.

    I'd probably wait until bottling time and then do some samples with different amounts of
    pomegranate added to see the ratio you like. If kegging you can add directly to the keg until

    I normally use the paint strainer bags from Home Depot but they start to get tears after 5-6
    uses it seems. I put one of those in a steamer basket that had the bottom and lower side holes
    drilled out ...
