I'm about midway through my keg. This beer is a fantastic summer drinker. As light as many cream ales but with a fantastic rye flavor. I'm loving it.

As for the whiskey barrel idea, I skipped it this time but I think it would do ok with a little oak and whiskey flavor in the mix. I think I'll give it a go before the end of the summer.

Well the crab fest was this past weekend and the reception for this beer was great. The host was an especially big fan. A smooth summer drinker that goes down almost creamy. Brewing this again soon, and already working on the recipie for a rye focused Chessapeake Common Ale variation.

Cheers, Revvy!

I was watching a game a few weeks ago and I decided to make a beer for the team and this one popped up. Glad it has a good connection to vintage. Planning on making this on Wednesday. Looking forward to it.
Oh, I missed this post. No we haven't travelled outside Michigan to play yet, except into Canada to play a couple teams just across the border into Ontario.

I have to get a batch brewed soon for August.

I'll be doing my sour mash Kentucky Common again in a couple weeks, followed by a lacto fermented version. The sour mash got good scores in the SSBO (averaged 41.5), so I'm happy.

Im checking this out after about 6 wks since bottleing. At first i had some low carbonation,now its right.Used SF05 ginger beer slurry and hopping it more with Galana and im still getting that hop aroma as well as the previous beer slurry flavors/aroma .I also got a higher abv 1.054-1.007 and therefore uped and had to sub crystal 60 and carwheat a bit for a crystal 120 sub. This turned out to be a very fantastic beer this way (which i was trying to avoid subbing anything but it is what i had to work with at the time) still with great aroma and flavor.

Drinking my first pint of this out of my nitro faucet. Really good! Beer gas gives it a bit of creaminess with a nice dry rye finis.. Great beer! Thanks for the research and recipe OP
Cheers

If this were to be entered in a BJCP event, what category would it best be placed in?
