I love rye!
So a few years ago today I asked my wife to marry me...yes I am a true Irishman who asked his wife to marry him on St. Patrick's Day. Tonight I took her and our sons out for a nice dinner to celebrate an anniversary of sorts. My point of this post is that the bar had Sam Adams Revolutionary Rye on tap - I was already convinced I wanted to make a Rye next anyways - but after downing 3 tallboys of the Sam Adams versions and telling her she was driving home I realized I need to make a Rye for myself. I am still an extract brewer using specialty grains, can someone PLEASE give me a good Rye recipe, because I NEED to be drinking this on a regular basis.

Thank you so much!

Rye is one of my favs too! I'll post a recipe either later tonight or tomorrow morning!

I think AHS has a couple different rye beers, one is on special for $20 too that I got my eye on. Hurry up payday!!!

Here's mine. A great "summer" beer.

Can you do a partial mash? Because I'm pretty sure there aren't any extract rye.

Forgive me because its been a while since I converted a recipe to extract.
But you could do something like:

4lbs Extra Light DME
2lbs 6 Row (to help with conversion)
2lbs Rye

Steep the grains at about 150 for 60mins
Hop to preference. Love rye, so good!

I have heard good things about northern brewers RyePA kit

AHS has a kit clone of a local beer, the Real Ale Brewing Co. Full Moon Pale Rye. The actual beer is great...about 5.7% and about 40 IBUs.with a crisp rye flavor and some hop tones. AHS has extract kits available for it, and while I can't speak for the kit itself, if it's anywhere near the clone, you'll be happy
