5.4% 0.50lb Crystal 60L
.6% 1.0oz Black Patent


1.5oz Willamette (45min)
.8oz Willamette (20min)

Irish Moss
1/2# RICE HULLS!!!


Strike water to 167*, mashed for one hour at 155*, sparged with 167*, It is an absolute must to use the rice hulls. I didn't on the first batch and it came out to be a two hour sparge. Not fun!!

This beer is awesome, malty, creamy, rye-y and a light golden color with just enough amber to make it not be golden. I went from kettle to the keg in 8 days and pulled my first pint on day 10. It is fantastic to drink and turned out to be a great session beer, kinda on accident honestly. I aimed for just over 4% abv and came in just under. Not really a big problem though because this beer is spot on Delicious!

This is that perfect BMC drinkers beer that still has a great flavor that is perfect for a homebrewer.

Cheers!

So I have gone through nearly half of this keg and planning on making another batch of it in the very near future as it is so drinkable. I will be adding just a slight bit more rye (5lbs) to the 3# of MO in order to get the OG up a notch.

This beer was enjoyed this week by a couple of friends that only drink BMC, another fellow that only likes Pale Ales, another that drinks wine pretty much and a couple of fellows that chose it over a stout (Boddington drinkers).
