Default Add some spice to my bock with a bit of rye?

So now that my fiasco with the liquid sausage beer, Rauchbier, is to the final stage of brewing it on Friday, I now want to brew a Bock. Because tis the season to lager with the reduced temperature. I was looking for some advice from everyone out there. I want to brew a Bock that has the nice spiciness from Rye and malt and top it off with ...drum roll please... Peppercorns. I think Sam from Dogfish Head has this in one of his books, but I'm going all grain not extract. So can I get some beta on this recipe? Please? Anybody?

I personally think its a good idea. Between the peppercorns and the rye you should get a very nice spice note.

How are you going to add the corns? Bag them or just free float them? I think I would put them in a hop bag to keep them out of my valve/drain.

Good choice of hops too.

I was thinking I might add them, the peppercorns, to this tea ball I have and drop the whole thing in at flame out.

Wow, that is a big grainbill! Based on your OG, you're slightly out of style for a Bock according to the BJCP guidelines, but I think it'll be a good beer. Then again, rye isn't part of a Bock grainbill to begin with, so it's a non-traditional beer all around!

Don't forget the rice hulls- that rye can be a gluey mess when mashed.
