Description

Feeling a little rebellious?  Like a pale ale that has gone astray?  While the Renegade Rye doesn't break all the rules, it certainly deserts the path of an average pale ale!  The backbone of this brew is our rye liquid malt extract, which adds slight fruity and spicy characteristics to the malt flavors.  The clean bitterness from Magnum hops allows these malt flavors to mix perfectly with the aromas of Columbus, Citra, and Centennial hops. 

So go ahead, brew the Renegade Rye and rebel against standard pale ales!

Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags or yeast. The recommended yeast(s) can be found below. All grains will come milled.

delicious
This is one of my "go to" kits. It is well priced, has the alcohol level I look for and is yummy. Have to keep an eye on it when bringing to boil as it tends to boil over. I often bring it on Mnt. bike rides to share with the guys. Re-named it "Afteryed" jm

Prefer the all grain version
I have brewed the all grain version twice and loved it. Great with an English yeast and a Samson yeast. Extract version is a little heavy on caramel malt for my taste. Kit contains the same amount of caramel as the ag version, but the rye malt extract also contains caramel malt. Would probably be better if the caramel grains were reduced would probably be better.

Rye knot?
As others have noted it has a spicy flavor, but I would like to add not like garlic, pepper or onion. It's more like Rye bread (go figure). It's flavor is definitely more than what the o.g. would indicate. It is easy drinking with full body and nice hoppy flavour with almost creamy mouth feel. My only problem with it is that it is out of stock a lot.

Another Great Recipe
This is my first rye brew and I can't compliment this kit enough. Very reasonably priced and is just as flavorful as the higher priced IPA's. The spicyness of the rye is much more subtle than I anticipated and the hop profile blends in perfectly. Easy to brew, quick boil to bottle time, and a big hit with friends; some of which are hopheads and others that aren't. This will be added to my regular rotation as it goes quick.

Goodbye Midwest
I brewed this with a WYeast 3711 French Saison yeast which accentuated the flavor of the C hops. It turned out really well. A spicy rye with a citrus kick. Good-bye Midwest, Morebeer's awesomer!

Great recipe!
Clean, citrus hop aroma from late addition and dry hops. Less than moderate malt backbone with some spice from rye. Because of the rye, it appears to have dry finish (1.012 FG). All around, this is a very simple recipe that tastes more complex than the actual time spent brewing it. I would recommend this to any level of brewer.

Surprisingly spicey
This is an amazingly unique brew. I like brown ales best anyway, but this is different from any other. It is smokey and quite spicy. if you are looking for something beyond the over hopped pale ales, this is what you want. In my opinion, the hops meld better and are less obtrusive, while the spice of the rye adds a very different dimension to the flavor. I really like this mix.

A great quick cheap brew!
Bought this because, let be honest of price, wanted to keep some filler on hand. A cheap house beer if you will. I did modify recipe a bit, because a couple friends like a bit more hop aroma. I Just left my dry hops in the keg, never took them out. Mine ended @ around 5.4ABV (bonus!)

In the end its a decent beer that all others initially said "Not bad", but no striking features. When I told them it was around $16 a case, their reactions changed to "whoahh...really? I cant even buy Bud for that!, gimme another" If you are starting out, and don't want to waste money give this one a shot.....remember $16/case!

So for a cheap house beer, this will be plugged in the rotation in my fridge!
Really enjoy this beer
This is an easy kit to make and the results are surprising and delicious. It's quite dry with a firm, but not overpowering, bitterness. But the real character comes from the spicy, earthy undertones the rye malt adds. I have sought out a number of rye beers since I made this and generally rye is an addition rather than a primary flavor component as it is here, so they seem tame in comparison. If you like rye, this beer is definitely worth a try.
