Batch 125, Denny Conn's Rye IPA

We did this for a club group brew at my house. Small crowd, but good fun. Just 3 brewers, David, Bob, and myself, plus some help from Steve P, Niko, and Don. We made 30 gallons all together, so everyone left with 5 gallons each.

I copied this straight from Denny's page:

Sep 1, update: added dry hops.

Sep 22, update: Went to rack to a keg today. What is this? I've never seen bubbles like that. Looks almost moldy, maybe. The hydrometer sample tasted okay, so I kegged it. Knowledgeable people from my brew club say it's a pellicle.






Dec 27, update, it's still in the lager fridge, just waiting. I'm afraid to put it on tap. Someday...
