An Irish Rye Stout

Here's a somewhat belated entry for a St. Patrick's Day next!

8 pounds Durst Pilsner
12 ounces Roast Barley
6 ounces Munton's Chocolate Malt
1 pound flaked Rye

Hops: Glacier 6.2%,
1 ounce at 60 EOB
1 ounce 30 EOB

Yeast, Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale

A 4 gallon sparge yielded a 1.058 Original Gravity, no make up water. The projected OG was 1.052, the batch is a bit smaller than usual. Irish Moss and Gypsum as usual. This was the first time I've used the Glacier hops, and I'm looking forward to telling you how it came out!

It came out so well there was no trace left in three days. Try it!
