Private Rye Undercover Brown Ale All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Use your deductive powers to uncover a refreshing, easy drinking brown ale. You may observe a creamy biscuit, caramel, and toasty spice flavor, while an earthy cocoa and light hop character dominate the aroma. As you delve deeper, a light spice from the rye malt lurking in the shadows may reveal itself to you. Deceptively light in body, covertly big on flavor, and it only available from Northern Brewer.

Mashed this with a Grainfather and used Safale S05 yeast on a starter. OG was 1.052 (brewhouse efficiency 72%) and attenuation was 79%. Fermented @ 66°F for 10 days, transferred to a secondary for 9 days and then kegged. More brown in color than amber. Moderate toast taste and nice, long-lasting bitterness, but there's no "core." It tastes hollow or "thin." Needs more body to be really appealing.
By far my favorite recipe ever. I have friends that say it is awesome (even my preacher and his wife!)
My batch turned out beautifully dark and rich. It is a real crowd pleaser.
This kit arrived quickly and was well put together. We hit the target OG easily. Fermentation happened on schedule and was very healthy. The FG puts the beer somewhere in the 5-6%abv. Just waiting on the beer to condition in the kegs and then we can have a Homebrew! Cheers!
