One of my Favorites
I use 6 lbs. Rye and 3 lbs. Golden to make a IPA that is one of my favorites. I've compared it in blind taste tests against a company that makes a rye out of Chico, CA. Hmmmm. Favorite summertime IPA

Rye malt from Nortern Brewer
Well I haven't used any of this malt yet but my last purchase was used to brew a roggenbeir that won best in show for mixed style at the Nebraska State Fair in 2017. Had a head you could float quarter on.

Hearty Deli Rye Bread
I am a Baker not a Brewer, but we do have yeast in common. I like a really hearty Rye bread. However, to get that strong taste one has to use 100% Rye flour which is difficult to manage and results in a loaf like a brick. Deli Rye Bread is 50% wheat flour and has a much nicer texture - but not the strong Rye flavor - UNLESS one adds the Rye Malt extract. Then you have a hearty tasting Rye bread with a great texture. ENOUGH SAID! Dr. John.

Decidedly different
I tried a kit first and loved the rye, didn’t like the overpowering citrus hops in it. I suspected the spicy hint in the background could be brought out. Brewed this simple. Just 1oz Tettnang at 50 min. and 1oz US Saaz at 5min. with 6 lbs. rye malt and T-58 yeast. 2 weeks primary, 2 weeks secondary. Just tried one at 1 1/2 weeks in the bottle. It worked. It needs about another week, but the subtle spicy flavors came out nicely. If you are looking for something different, try a rye. A little caramel, a spicy background, and a whole realm of light spice from the yeast. I’m really going to like this. You can’t get this range of unique flavors from barley and 05.

Using for Rye bread
I bought this for adding to my recipe for Finnish flat rye bread as it was an ingredient in the store bought kind. This adds the perfect flavor and aroma to my rye bread! I have nothing to compare to as this is the first time I've purchased rye malt syrup, but this seems to be of good quality!

Great Product- Satisfied Customer
I really liked the flavor it gave my sourdough bread, as well as the color. On its own, it is delicious- almost sweet like molasses.

Can't say anything negative
Used this in my first Rye IPA, and it came out great! Nicely balanced - the rye was there, but not overpowering. Got rave reviews from others as well.

Solid extract
Used this extract plus 2 lbs rahr 2-row on a hop-busted rye IPA. Turned out excellent. Can't wait to use this again for another rye-based ale. Great stuff.

Too Dark
Great flavor, but much darker than the 6 L that is advertized. Was looking for a much lighter color in the beer, but got the look of a Brown Ale.

Is there a maximum amount that can be used per batch. My BeerSmith is saying
50%, is that correct?
David S on May 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry guys. Haven?t used it at any strength other than as it comes, though I only use it without any other additions. The mix is good, I think. Any stronger might be a too much. The last couple of batches have seemed a bit skunky, though none of my other batches have been effected. I have been VERY careful to cover every carboy every time in some old, dark, flannel pillow cases since I made that mistake with what should have been a grand oatmeal stout.
I like the spicy character of rye. It?s quite different. Don?t like the citrusy American hops with it, they?re too much and the wrong flavor. Sterling is ok but bland, as is the Kent Goldings. I?m still looking for the spicy? hop that will fit. If I figure it out, I?ll share.
Mind you, I have drank every bottle I have made with it. OK, not special. Maybe I see something that is not there, maybe my favorite brew. That?s part of the fun, right.
Do you have a Roggenbier extract kit? Or could possibly put one together!!
R A on Jan 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the inquiry. We do not offer a roggenbier recipe and could not really endorse and price out a kit right now. I'll pass along the inquiry to let the product development team know about the interest. If you want to follow a recipe, we could sell the parts a la carte. Here is a link the BYO details about the style. with recipes: https://byo.com/hops/item/1329-roggenbier-style-of-the-month

Let us know if we can help further!
