I just brewed this, it's going under CO2 tonight. I only did a 60 min boil so my preboil volume was only 6.5. My FG came out to be 1.050.

My grain bill was a bit different, I used this one: http://www.johnsubasavage.com/Brewin...Ale_Clone.html
So where you have 600g each of rye and munich I had 1lb munich and 2lbs rye.
Dry hopped with amrillo at 70 for one day then let it sit at about 55 for 6 more. I did two weeks in the primary and then dry hopped for a week in my corny.

I am interested to see how this is coming along, it was good out of the fermenter but didn't have as much rye flavor as I thought it would. Will see how it comes along in time.

Oh, and I never use any gypsum or water treatments they discuss. I just filter my water for every brew.

I didn't brew this one, but Tasty had a keg of it available at the BN Winter Brew's Fest earlier this year and I give it a big thumbs up. It was probably my favorite of all the homebrews they had on tap, with the possible exception of Nathan Smith's Old Ale.

I brewed this one up yesterday; had a FG of 1.056. It was fermenting away nicely this morning. I will report back on how it turns out.

So... where's the update on this, Bheher?:D

I brewed something very similar to this. Used columbus instead of Magnum and Willamette instead of Fuggles and EKG.

I emailed spike awhile back and got the recipe. The hops are a bit different from what your recipe is but very similar. Sub Warrior for Magnum, and 2 oz of Amarillo per 5g for dry hopping. He also has it a 38 IBU's.

The version I made came out really well. I think there could have been a bit more rye though.

Sorry I always forget to update.

I really liked it, thought this version had more hops then the Terrapin version I have had. Thought this would be a beer that the girls would like (as terrapin rye is) but this was a bit hoppy for them. Maybe if I let it sit for a couple weeks longer the hops would have faded but I had a party and the keg was kicked when it was about 4 weeks old.

i brewed this as well and it was the best beer i have ever brewed (although i do LOVE Terrapin's Rye Pale Ale). With that said, i agree that this is hoppier but i will also say that i liked this beer even more than the commercial version because of it.

This is a GREAT commercial beer and even better recipe. LOVE IT!!
