    I’m liking the look of the Rye Amber (Red perhaps?) with Columbus. Interesting that you chose Cascade as the bittering hop.

  2. I brewed the one with rye a week and a half ago – and, yup, it’s red 🙂 I also dry hopped it with 14g each of columbus and simcoe – I need to crash it this weekend and rack it early next week. The cascade went in as first wort – looking for a hint of the cascade flavour without overpowering everything else. Plus, I needed to use them up… I could possibly increase by 50% the flaked rye I think.

    I’m still fiddling with recipes for bitters – I can’t pin down what I’m after in any way shape or form – there’s not really any commercial offerings I could say that give me something I could happily brew over and over and drink for the rest of time. My Downton Quadhop clone was pretty good, and popular with family but still fiddling…
