Default Live and Let Rye

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Kolsch Yeast (Wyeast Labs #2565)
Yeast Starter: Optional
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: None
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.054
Final Gravity: 1.014
IBU: 44
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 8.3
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10
Additional Fermentation: None
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7
Tasting Notes: Malt sweetnes from the crystal overtaken quickly by rye with hints of citrus.

At six months in the bottle this is a fantastic beer, competition level good. Being a pale ale, it isn't overpowering and is on par or better than anything commercial I've tried.

A: Golden amber with an off white creamy head. Tight bubbles, impressive lacing.
S: Fresh tangerines with a hint of pine and grass.
T: Malt and slight sweetness from the crystal overtaken quickly by rye with hints of citrus and grass. Finish is more rye followed by a citrus splash that's fantastic and a pleasant bitterness that lingers a bit.
M: Medium body creaminess, slightly dry.
O: If you like something a little out of the ordinary give this a try. At a month in the keg this was a good beer. I got very positive feedback from my friends and a couple strangers at a party who tried it, but at six months in the bottle it's a much more refined beer. If your looking for a beer to bottle and put away for a rainy day this is it. Only changes I would make to the recipe is to maybe increase the grains to give me a higher ABV since it will be sitting so long anyways.

Thanks for the recipe I'm definitely gonna try this! 2 questions: is the 7 days listed as the dry hop: Is that 7 days after sitting in the primary? I've done a black IPA that told me to dry hop when i siphoned it to the secondary which was at about 7 days into the ferment period too. Plus did you do a yeast starter? Like 2L yeast starter or just dump the package into the primary?

For ale's I don't normally secondary, I just toss the hops in after primary fermentation is over usually at the 1 week mark and let it seek another week. Optionally if you want a three week or longer primary add the hops in the last week. If you normally do a secondary I would add the hops at that point, again during the last week of the secondary. If you can cold crash for 2~3 days before bottling/kegging it will really help drop the hops/yeast/proteins out of suspension and improve clarity.

As far as starters go, I normally do use a starter. Especially if I'm re-pitching washed yeast which I did in this beer. I usually start my starter 2 days prior in 1 cup of DME boiled in 4 cups of water that has cooled to room temp. This gets you roughly a S.G. of 1.040. I use a 1.75 liter wine bottle and just swirl it ever time I walk by. Eventually I'll get a stir plate and 2 liter Erlenmeyer flask. On brew day I'll stick it in the fridge for 4~5 hours then decant most of the liquid off before letting it sit an hour to get back closer to room temp.

hope this helps, happy brewing!
