Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Giant alcohol coupled with massive hop bite and hop nose. The rye is bringing the noise with huge backend bite. Not for the faint of heart.

Procedure Nothing fancy......mash in and hold between 150-155 for an hour. Do a nice long half hour sparge. Please note the double dose of dry hopping. 3/4 of an ounce of each hop in primary and 3/4 of an ounce of each hop in secondary. It needs time in the bottle. Give it a couple of months to let the rye mellow.
