Jacob Lahne's Thesis: AROMA CHARACTERIZATION OF AMERICAN RYE WHISKEY BY CHEMICAL AND SENSORY ASSAYS, has an outstanding section on the production of Rye and Bourbon whiskey. It is in the History and Production of Whiskey section starting on page 5. Great illustrations also.

AROMA CHARACTERIZATION OF AMERICAN RYE WHISKEY BY CHEMICAL AND SENSORY ASSAYS (http://www.ideals.illinois.edu/bitstream/handle/2142/16713/1_Lahne_Jacob.pdf?sequence=2)

The ryes used in his study were: Jim Beam Rye, Old Overholt, Rittenhouse and Wild Turkey.

Really, check out his illustrations on pages 24-29.

Enjoy!

I am glad to see they are still doing excellent research at my alma mater.

I certainly did my graduate work in the wrong subject though!
