      Well what do you know?    One of these showed up at my doorstep recently.

       

       

      It just so happens that I am brewing a rye saison this weekend, so what I will do is put this one in the fridge and have it while I am brewing.

          Photos of what?  You've seen photos of me brewing before.  However, I will let you know if there are any special farts as Arla says.

            Interesting brew day for sure.  First of all, the Yazoo Rye Saison was very good.

             

            There was a piece of grain that made its way into the chuck of my drill while I was milling.  It jammed up the chuck and I had a hell of a time getting the chuck off.  My drill may be DOA.  It was a cheap 20 year old drill so no big loss if that is the case.

             

            Believe the stories about rye making for a gooey, sticky mess.  The sparge took 3 hours (normally no longer than half an hour).  Next time I brew with rye I will be adding lots of rice hulls.  It was a long brew day.

             

            But, the world did not come to an end and I have a batch of beer fermenting in the bucket.
