Hello all,
I've been brewing all grain for just under a year now, but have yet to make my own recipe. This is my first attempt, and i would like to hear some opinions or suggestions on this recipe.

My 2 cents- I have made a few Rye Ales and love em.
for 10 gallons- double your rye( i used 3lbs for 5 gallons)
- double your hops to 4 oz
also a 90 min boil was not necessary for my 5 gallon batches.

Awesome, i'll double the Rye.
As for the hops, you are saying just double my 2 oz additions and leave the others where they are?

Thank you, much appreciated.

Don't forget that rye is really sticky, and when mashed, has a tendency to stick to your false bottom.
I would use some rice hulls if you're going to use 4+ lbs.

Thanks, i actually was thinking about that. I'm not using a false bottom, I have a converted keg with a copper manifold. I'll pick up some rices to be sure i don't stick it.

For the hops, those amounts listed are about what I used for 5 gallons, so I would double them all up. Only thing I have only read, no experience is the Citra. I heard it is pretty potent, so not sure if doubling that would hurt, help or do the same.

I've used Citra and it has a unique aroma and flavor. Pretty much what you read... tropical fruity kind of thing.
