Wild Rice Brown Ale

Once again using an alternative grain in a Brown ale. Brewing with Minnesota grown Wild Rice. Adding a nutty character to this robust brown ale. Target abv of 6%. Brewed a few brown ales last year. A brown shugga clone, toasted rye brown, and most recently a buckwheat brown ale.

In the mash tun today. Pale malt, Amber malt, Coffee malt, Crystal malt, Chocolate malt and Minnesota grown wild rice. The rice adds complexity to an ordinary brown ale. Lightly hopped with Willamette and fermented with chico yeast. The rice added a great flavor to the finished brew and really made it an interesting brown ale. Rice in beer isn't always a bad thing.
