I've never made a recipe before, but I've been fascinated by rye IPA's ever since trying Sierra Nevada's Ruthless Rye, and I keep seeing Denny's Rye IPA touted--so I thought I'd try it. Unfortunately it's an all-grain recipe, and I haven't graduated to that yet.
I looked around on the intarwebs, thinking somebody surely had converted this by now. BeerSmith doesn't help, since Northern Brewer's rye malt is so new. So, I thought I'd take a stab at it. Anyone want to critique?
