CJ's Honey Rye
This is a copper colored rye ale, brewed with pilsner malt and flaked rye malt. Sixty pounds of fall wildflower honey is added to the whirlpool. Honey is 100% fermentable, which means that all of the sugars in honey will be fermented into alcohol during the fermentation process. However, by adding the honey at the end of the boil, it imparts a mild honey aroma into the finished product. Our honey rye ale has a dry spicy malt character, accompanied by a distinct floral flavor and mild floral aroma. The honey is purchased from a small family owned Apiary in the Finger Lakes region of NY. CJ is the second addition to the Ericson family.
