This beer came out great. It was originally supposed to be a normal take on the Kentucky Common style, but the brew store was out of flaked corn the day I went in to get ingredients. That also happened to be the day before I intended to brew the beer so there wasn’t any room to source the corn. Instead, I grabbed flaked rye and ended up with this beer slightly to the left of a normal KY Common.

It’s roasty and toasty with a good rye character. The head retention is amazing, and clarity is divine.
