Rye IPA with Greg

Earlier this month, I brewed up batch #11 - a Rye IPA that contained wheat, sugar, and Amarillo & Nelson Savin finishing hops. I brewed this up with a friend (Greg) from church at his house, while our wives looked on. My wife jumped in during a critical moment during the cooling process that helped save the day! We enjoyed an Iron Fist IPA (9am isn't too early to drink is it?) and some home made wine that Greg has been working on for a couple years). We used a White Labs Cal Ale 001 compliments of Hess Brewing. Thank you Greg for all the great photos below!

This IPA had an original gravity of 1.076, final gravity of 1.02,  ABV at 7.3%.
