Buchwider Bräu ??

Although I bottled my ?? two months ago, I haven’t blogged it till now because its beautiful reddish colour never showed up in the photos I took of it. (The trick turned out to be to use a tripod and no flash, of course.)

Anyway, ?? is a rye beer, brewed in the style of a German Weißbier with the addition of crystal rye malt (to be precise, I used 400 g pearl malt, 2000 g Munich malt, 1600 g wheat malt and 1000 g crystal rye malt).

It’s quite an interesting beer, surprisingly light and with a hint of Danish rye bread.

Unfortunately I used too much priming sugar, so you need to be careful when opening it!
