Rye Stout Critique
Brewing up a rye stout tomorrow which is based off of Yoopers Oatmeal stout grain bill.
yeast Wyeast Northwest Ale (1332)
5 lb Maris otter
2 lb rye malt
.5 chocolate malt
.5 roasted barley
1 lb victory
1 lb flaked rye
60 min - 10% northern brewer (34 ibus)
i went with northern brewer because i think it will meld well with the rye.
The questions are..
Should i add more hops and make it more of an american stout? maybe 40-45 ibus
should i mash a little lower to make it a dry stout.. could go good with the rye perhaps??
This is the first beer i have done with rye.
Any feedback, changes, or criticism is welcome!
