Might also switch out the liberty for palisades. I'd also like to try to find a fruitier yeast, the T-58 gave a spiciness but not really any banana like you'd find in a proper hefe. I've heard bad things about Munich and WB-06, but maybe they're worth a shot anyway. This is definitely one for a rebrew.
Ok, how much are you thinking on the amylese? Are the hop changes to up or reduce the bittering or hop flavor? Are you thinking the palasides will give a more floral? How much more spice?

Im thinking of doing this one or one close...

The amylase, I'd add a tsp right after removing the steeping black rice, but before bringing to a boil. The hop changes are more to up the aroma and flavor; to be more specific, I'd like more fruit in the nose and the initial taste. Here's *exactly* what I would do, for the hop changes:

0.5 oz palisades, 45 min
0.5 oz palisades, 10 min
0.5 oz cascade, 5 min
1 oz cascade, flame-out

Another option I'd like to try with this recipe is doing all pacific gem. But I have no experience with this hop and can't recommend that you try that. The above hop schedule I'm much more confident in.

Spice additions, I'd do more like an oz of crushed coriander, and the peel of a whole orange.

I feel like a peeping tom but can you post a picture? I'm curious as to what color the rice imparted. My dark roasted quinoa really, really, added a lot of color in my last batch.

Alright, alright...now you all can quit buggin' me!




I really wish I knew why this beer makes me so gassy...I suspect something to do with the fact that I didn't cook the rice before steeping it, but it could also be the T-58 (I hope not, though! Love the flavor this yeast imparts!).

Well, the purple is pretty subtle, you only really get it when the light shines through it. It was much more purple before it cleared.

Sorry for the zombie thread ...

Hey igliashon, I wanted to thank you for this recipe and idea. I made up a batch with double the rice and some changes to the hops based on what I had in stock. Its been my best beer so far!! There is a subtle cherry taste that is awesome and the colour came out a really dark red.

Thanks for posting it up,
BC
