Item currently out of stock

Feeling a little rebellious like Clint Eastwood or Roland Deschain?  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 and take your best shot, brew the Renegade Rye and rebel against standard pale ales!

Rye first time
Five weeks from brew date this beer has a smooth finish! Not overly hoppy and the district rye flavor. Very good beer.

Perfect price!
This is my economic kit. A good beer for the price. I usually brew late summer for a fall beer.

Never had a rye thought I would try
Not enough sugar in kit to carb 5 gals. drank half that was flat. Popped the cap on the rest, poured it into my fermentasaurus added 1/4 oz of sugar solution gave it a stir re-bottled and let sit for 2 weeks. Turned out pretty damn good, will buy another kit come summer.

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.
