My first batch was with CalAle and it turned out fine.

I need a quick turnaround session so I will be brewing up a batch of Kentucky Common tomorrow. Came across this post a while back and brewed a half batch of Revvy's recipe at the beginning of the year and though it was great. Then went home to MN and had Summit's Old 152 and loved it. The brewer at Summit is a buddy of mine and I got some additional thoughts on what I might do with the recipe.

I think this time around I am going to do an inverted "high rye" burbon grain bill (i.e. up the rye to 18% - I love rye in my beers). I am also going to use crystal 80 as I prefer the flavor to 120L and add touch of Victory malt (2 oz for 5 gallons).

Just killed my keg tonight. I'm gonna do a re-brew of this in a few weeks. It only lasted a month. Considering I'm the only beer drinker in the house, it went pretty quick. Good stuff.

It would be nice to use a yeast I can reuse and save some money.. but I understand if it ferments too dry. Maybe cali 5 would be a better choice but I'm less likely to reuse it. I know either would make a good beer, but will 001 be way off the mark, flavor wise?
WLP001 is what I used, and I love the results. And I reuse that like crazy. I believe I washed a WLP001 yeast cake and split it into 2 new beers, this being one of them.

I've used Nottingham before at around 60. Worked very well. Never at higher temps where the esters would come through.

Just tapped this keg after fining on gelatin for a week. This is really interesting. Very clean with with a rye bite finish. This is the first beer I've ever brewed with rye in it, and it is very nice! Thanks Revvy!

Brewed a bigger hoppier version this time for an upcoming crab fest.
OG: 1.052
FG: 1.011
ABV: 5.4%
IBU: 26.5

5.3# American 6-Row
2# Flaked Corn
1# Flaked Rye
1# Dark Brown Sugar
2oz English Crystal 70-80L
2oz English Crystal 160L
2oz Chocolate Malt 350L
1oz Bramling Cross (7.4%) @45min for 17.2 IBUs
1oz Bramling Cross (7.4%) @15min for 9.3 IBUs
3/4oz Bramling Cross (7.4%) Dry-Hopped for 1 Week
White Labs CalAle yeast

I wanted to keep the creamy mouthfeel without making it heavy at this higher grav, so I went with 6-row for the extra proteins. Tasted great while bottling this morning. Can't wait to try it cold.
