Default Red's Rye Recipe

So I've been doing a lot of searching looking for a Red's Rye recipe. I've seen lots of variations and Can't decide which I should go with. I'm leaning towards the following recipe, but I have seen some that substitue 2-row for the M.O.
9 lbs M.O.'
3 lbs rye
1 lb cara munich
.5 lb crystal 40
.5 lb crystal 20
3 oz. special B

1.5 oz Perle (60)
1 oz. Amarillo (30)
1 oz. Amarillo (15)
.5 oz. Amarillo (0)
1 oz. Amarillo (DH)
Nottingham

Who had tried the various recipes for this and what is the consensus on a good one?
And on a side note - Being a noob, I'm not sure the differences between 2-row and M.O. What kind of flavor differences can I expect between the two.

Thanks for any info and advice!

Here is my best guess at Founders Red's Rye...I am brewing on Wednesday. I am probably not much help to you yet but I think you are close. I know that Founders uses 2-Row Rye and Cara Pils...and I have heard (without confirmation) that they use 1056 for most of there beers. Your hops seem right. An email from a brewer at founders says to put more emphasis on the 30 minute hop charge opposed to the 60 minute. He also recommended more of a dry hop than you have, but I think your ok. I used Caramel 40 & 80 L for whatever its worth

When my batch is ready to drink...I am going to get a growler of Red's and do a taste test with my buddies...if all goes well

And MO vs 2-row...I believe it is an English v American thing. I think the flavor between these two is pretty similar...2-row will give you a little more clarity and lighter color...but I am no expert and I am sure someone will tell me that I am wrong in much more depth.

Thanks for the input. I just transferred this to secondary for dry hop the other day. The sample I pulled tasted very close to Red's Rye. The color didn't even seem close though. More of a pale ale than what Red's Rye looks like. I've always been more concerned with how my beer tastes than what color or clarity it is but.....curious as to where Red's gets that hint of red from. I would be interested in sampling yours alongside mine. I am in Grand Rapids every weekday. Care to do a swap?

Dude, you're wrong, and heres a 10 page essay why... blah blah blah.

MO does have a slightly different flavor that most consider to be a more intense malt flavor than regular American 2-row. I like to use MO when i'm going for a maltier beer, and 2-row when going for a hoppier beer or a stout thats going to be overshadowed by roasted grains anyways.

I made, what I consider to be, an exact replica of Red's RyePA... the color, clarity, hops... for me were spot on! I know you have a bit too much rye there... and I used pale ale malt as opposed to just straight 2-row, but I doubt you will see much of a difference. I think you want your rye down closer to 11-12% of your grain bill. I am at work now and don't have my recipe on hand, but if I can remember, I will post my version here later on tonight.

dannedry - I would love to see your recipe. I, myself, have not attempted building my own recipe for anything yet. This was just one I scrounged up here in the forum.
awarner - I plan to bottle this weekend. If you think about it when you get to a point that yours is ready, shoot me a note. We could meet up at Founders or something and do a swap.

Fermentation schedule was roughly 2 week primary at 63 degrees, followed by a 2 week secondary at 63 degrees... dry hop for the last 7 days of the secondary fermentation.

This is truely, a GREAT rye ipa, and like I said, for me and everybody else that tried it, it right on the MONEY with the Founders Red's Rye PA!

Cheers!
