Downward is Heavenward
Rustic Rye Lager
Downward is Heavenward is our take on a more agrarian style of lager. We used an old world style of Pilsner malt along with some rye in the mash. Before actually mashing in we lined our tun with Kentucky Bluegrass hay and proceeded like normal. This beer was then hopped in the kettle with a blend of Spalter, Hersbrucker, and Saaz at various additions, then fermented long and cold with a lager yeast near and dear to us.
