I modified this recipe slightly, by mistake of course. Instead of using 7lbs extract in the mini-mash kit I used 5lbs. Once I realized this mistake, and guessed the % alc to be about 3.5% I boiled up some alc. boost. I figure it to be about 4%. It now is light summer rye (I call Ryolite because I am a dork Geologist). It does not taste like a light beer though. It has the distinct rye taste. Do yourself a favor and sample some ryes before you buy this. If you like it buy this. It hits the rye flavor head on. It's a little light in the body, but not bad (keep in mind my mistake). Several people liked it at the 4th of July BBQ, even though it was a little flat from the growler (I keg my beer). I personally am not a huge fan of rye (did not do much of taste test), so I will not brew it again. It is a very drinkable beer for the summer. Brewed with Danstar Nottingham (dry) yeast.
