Crystal is good as far as quantity. I usually go with 10L but only to keep it a bit lighter color. I add a little carapils as well but I don't think it is necessary and will probably leave it out next time.
The key to this is the dry hopping...and time. Let it sit in the primary for at least 3 weeks and then dry hop in the secondary. You may have to wait 3 weeks in the bottle for proper carb and melding of flavors but it will be good. This is now one of my standards that I try to keep in regular rotation. I think the rye is the key.
