Just brewed this one last night. Terrapin Rye is currently my favorite pale ale, and being that we don't get this in Arkansas, it makes things difficult. I can see this beer quickly becoming my house pale.

Quick update. I pulled my first pint tonight and have to say this is one of the best beers I've ever made. It was a tad too sweet because I accidentally put in too much honey malt, but even that does not detract at all from the beer. The hops are wonderful, the malt backbone is perfect, and it is dangerously drinkable. Highly, highly recommended.

I did a partial mash of this and it turned out great. I just did a side by side tasting, and it's damn close. Mine is still a little under carbed (only two weeks in the bottle so far), but the hops come through a lot more clearly. The rye makes for such a fresh aftertaste. I can already tell I'll be brewing this one often.

I brewed this a few months ago. It was straight by the recipe (including the water chemistry) except I used Denny's Favorite for the yeast.

Possibly the best beer I've brewed in the two plus years I've been brewing.

I haven't tasted the original, but I like rye ales and love APAs and IPAs, so it looked like a no brainer. It was, but I can't compare it to the original.

Think S-05 would be fine for this one? I don't see why not but I'm curious what others think. Sounds delicious.

Should be fine. S-05 will probably attenuate a little more and have a cleaner fermentation profile. I don't see that at all detracting from this beer.

Austin Homebrew and Northern Brewer both stock Victory.

If you don't want to order it online, Aromatic will be all right. It won't be the same, but it would work.

Brewed this one back in March and it turned out great. The hop character was more evident in my 10 gal. batch, but I think alot of that can be attributed to the age and storage of the six pack of the commercial example that I had. Defnitely one of the best pale ales I have made, and I must say that I am a huge fan of the American ale II strain. Repitched it to a porter and that turned out very nice as well. Too bad my LHBS only carries white labs strains.
