Brew Day, Batch #314

Let it be known that today, the dumbass remembered to add the salts. And, using an uncharacteristic amount of foresight, the aforementioned brewer is brewing up a batch of Rye Peppercorn Pale Ale before the current batch runs out. There will likely be a short gap between the time the current keg runs out and today's batch is ready, but it should be survivable. This beer is one of the Cicerone's best friends; 'tis hard to find a more food-friendly beer. (I hear it's a particularly good base for a barbecue mop....) The specs, more or less:

OG 1.052-1.056 from 60% pils, 30% light Munich, 10% flaked rye, and a pinch of Special B,

BU 35,

Bittered with Centennial, couple small late additions of Cascade,

2 oz. crushed Tellicherry black peppercorns added near end of boil,
