Baird Brewmasterís Blunder Rye Lager


Formerly brewed at Baird Brewing Co.
Numazu, Shizuoka, Japan
Style: Specialty Grain | Ratings: 3 | Autumn Seasonal | Alcohol: 6.2%
Rye malt adds a wonderful peppery bite to the flavor of a beer. Unfortunately, it is wickedly difficult to process in the brewhouse. Brewmasterís Blunder was our first attempt at brewing with rye malt. I stuck the glutonous mash, abandoned the lauter in midstream and lost major kettle volume. The resulting original gravity, and hence alcohol content, was higher than planned. Nonetheless, we saw this problemmatic brew through to packaging and then lagered it for one year. The delicious result of this mistake we are now sharing with you. Donít ask us to replicate it because I am sure we canít! Brewmasterís Blunder Rye Lager is available only on draught at Baird Beer retailing pubs and restaurants in Japan.
