Default Rye Pale Ale?

I'm thinking about brewing a Plain Pale Ale next time. Something simple and not too bitter. I like Rye IPAs though, and I wondered what it would be like to make Pale Ale with some rye?

How much would I use?

The last one I did, I went with 20% rye. I really liked it alot, and Bob did too (although he's not the rye fan that I am).

I saw a recipe in the database (I just noticed there was a rye section). I think 20% would be fine. I don't mind a lot of rye flavor.

What do you think about rye and cascade? I have a LOT of homegrown cascade. Not looking to make an IPA, just a balanced Pale Ale with something interesting (rye).

I've never bittered with cascade. I'm not sure I want to bitter with homegrown since I'd be guessing on the IBUs. I might add some late for flavor though.

I like cascade with rye. I've used willamette/cascade in a rye pale ale (sort of hopped like Bell's amber) and liked that alot, too.

My last was Weyermann pale Malt and Rye malt. The Rye was 25.7%. It may not be "right" but it is quite good.

I can find flaked rye at the homebrew store I frequent, but I did not find any rye malt. They have the largest selection in West Michigan, so I'd be surprised if they didn't have any. Just wondering if it would be ok to simply go with flaked for the entire recipe.

This is more of a full bodied American Amber Ale than a Pale Ale but this is the third time I've tweaked this recipe and love it. I used casacade and citra this time and it tastes good at three weeks right now. In the past have used Pale Ale Malt as the base. Color is great!

Ingredients
Amt Name Type # %/IBU
6 lbs 8.0 oz Rahr 2 Row Pale (1.7 SRM) Grain 1 59.1 %
3 lbs 8.0 oz Weyermann® Rye Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 2 31.8 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt -120L (120.0 SRM) Grain 3 4.5 %
8.0 oz Special B Malt (180.0 SRM) Grain 4 4.5 %

Just an idea, I love Rye so I've found 30% to be about right for me.

Just read another post on Northern Brewer about Denny's Wry Smile IPA (which you should consider making at some point if you like Rye beers!) and he said that when formulating the recipe he felt Flaked Rye didn't get him the same kick as the malt did. I'm inclined to trust him because that recipe is great.

I made the Summer Rye from Austin Homebrew and love it. It's got some zing. Might be lighter than you're looking for, though.

That's good to know. I definitely don't want it light on the rye flavor. I'll call the shop and see if they do carry it. I might have to order online or something crazy like that. Trouble is, we are going real close to the store this weekend on our way to/from Kzoo, so it would be a good time to grab what I need.
