Renegade Rye Brew - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

Renegade Rye Brew - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

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 contains over 15% rye malt, 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, yeast or priming sugar. The recommended yeast(s) can be found below. All grains will come milled, unless you select unmilled base malts.

Great Fall Beer
I love Rye PA (And Rye IPA's), and was so surprised by this one, that I'm going to be making it again, and again. I have had lots of great feedback from friends and family who have tried it.

There is one problem, is that is so good, it goes so fast.

Great summer beer
I bought this the first time because of the low price. I've bought it since because it's a great summer beer. With the addition of a little coriander and some German Mandarina Bavaria hops for added flavor, it's become my go to beer on a hot summer day of yard work.

Great RyePA
I've made this a couple of times and really enjoyed it both times. Great balance of hop flavor without being "too hoppy". I've made it with and without the dry-hops and liked it both ways. One of the better deals in all-grain recipe kits I have found.

Sleeper hit of a kit! If you love Pale Ales, this one is a must try
Being a fan of all things hoppy and not necessarily like the other 50+ kits out that are about all the same, I gave this a try. The low price almost put me off. Did a BIAB all-grain batch of this and fermented with 1217 Wyeast, and WOW is this an awesome combo. I'd think it would just as good with US-05, 1056 or any other California style ale yeast as well. The rye comes through clearly, but not overpowering at all. Overall, a very nice change from the normal Pale Ales that will be a multiple brew beer for me.

Great Price, Great Beer!
I figured I had to give this one a try given the price, and I was incredibly impressed. I ordered another kit within a week of cracking the first batch! It's a great blend of hops that combine well with the slight dry/spiciness of the rye malt. This beer has enough character for the craft beer fan, but is light enough that you may be able to convert others who prefer massed produced golden suds.

I used a strainer after the boil before adding to the primary fermenter, and racked to a carboy to dry hop after a week. I used a sanitized nylon grain bag on the end of my siphon hose to help catch the dry hops and ended up with great clarity and low sediment in bottles.

I put half of the second batch in my 2.5 gallon keg. This one should be great for gatherings!

Sleeper hit and a must try if you like Pale Ales and/or Rye beers
I bought this largely as a filler to get free shipping with very little in the way of expectations. I BIAB mashed this and fermented with Wyeast 1217 (West Coast IPA). I don't know if it is the yeast or the beer itself, or the combination, but WOW this is a good beer--even early on. I have only had four bottles from the 5.5 gal batch, but this kit is now on my "must brew regularly" list. A little spicy, but nicely complements the hops, with a within-style slight maltiness at the end. The head on this beer is unlike anything else I have brewed before--creamy and thick even with lower carbonation levels (the Rye malt?). Appearance is also great, as it looks like a perfect Pale Ale and tastes not too far away from a session IPA. Highly recommended!
