I mashed this beer pretty low so it will dry out and hopefully get some of the crisp, bready flavors of the Rye malt up front on the beer. That is another reason for the one 90 minute hop edition. This should give me bitterness with very little hop flavor.
I racked a little under 12 gallons into a Sanke keg @ 95*. It is currently sitting in my basement dropping down into the high 60s.
With the weather hot and my ground water not very cold this time a year I have been only chilling to the high 90s and letting my basement do the rest of the chilling. So far I have had good results with this.
