I've never used that recipe per say, but I have made several Rye beers in the past (the recipe I used is actually quite similar to the one you posted), and they turned out great. I love rye bread, and being able to control the spiciness of the beer was quite enjoyable. I say if you like rye, go for it, just one word of caution. The rye does get quite gelatin and sticky in the mash, so watch your proportions. I've never used a grain bill with more than 20% rye, so the recipe looks good to use, however that depends on your AG setup. If you have a solid process and equipment you trust then you could start at 20% no problem, but if you are like me, I started at about 10% the first time to get a feel for it and worked my way up. Good luck!

Not trying to thread hijack but have you tried any of the recipes that come with Beersmith? I've looked at them but gone w/ recipes from on here instead.

Ya I've been looking at recipes in both places, HBT and beersmith. I liked the one in beersmith because it seemed simple, and rye beers are delicious.

I think I will take Rivercity's advice and tone down the rye a bit.

In reference to the recipe, is it really necessary to use the calcium chloride if I'm not any where near Dallas, TX?

I think that really depends on your water chemistry, but is it necessary? I would say no... I use a charcoal filter, but when I made the beer last I didn't treat and just used de-chlorinated tap water.

If you do not normally manage your water hardness & relative alkalinity, then skip it. Just brew as you normally do, without it.

There are some cool things you can do for your beers with water treatment additions, but you need to know your local tap water report, salt addition effects, etc.

Good luck!

Ya that's what I thought. The Sierra Nevada brewery here in Chico, CA doesn't seem to have a problem using the water...(although they probably treat it)

Thanks for the advice everyone!
