Next time we brew this, I would like to increase the amount of rye by 5%. I have read that the GB should contain no more than 20% rye malt, but I've also seen recipes that hit up to 25%.

Have you seen a clone recipe for this? I wonder what the experimental hops are?

You can go up to 100% rye malt, its all a matter of personal taste. I do a rye version of my imperial belgian wit recipe subbing rye for the wheat, it comes out great, and that's 70% rye.

Ive never had a 100% or even 50% rye beer commercially.Any out there? I would like to try them rather than up my rye next time. Does it finish gravity just like any base malt?

Short's Rich's Rye. This is the one you need to try. I tried this at the Traverse City summer brew festival last August. The next day I took a short trip over to Short's in Bellaire. The guy behind the bar told me the grist was 85% rye. It is the best rye beer I've ever had.
Supposedly, it's available in spring but I'm just not sure if it goes out for distribution.

There is some good info attached to this thread! We will definitely brew this again, and we'll go with 5% to 10% incremental increases in the amount of rye we are using. I have read that GBs with more than 20% rye run the risk of decreased sparges and that rice hulls should be used. Believe it or not, we can't get rice hulls over here, so my only concern will be sparging.

My first rye beer was about 20% and I did not use rice hulls and it was a nightmare getting the mash to drain. It sucked big time. The next time I added .5 lbs of hulls and it drained beautifully! I would do what I could to obtain some.

Couldn't something locally available be subbed for rice hulls? You just need something organic that doesn't soak up water, like sunflower seeds or maybe even uncrushed whole grain wild rice (???). Just brainstorming. There isnt anything magical about rice hulls is there?
