Default Rye beer

I'm a HUGE fan of rye beer. Sierra Nevada's Ruthless Rye is one of my favourite beers.

I like just about every beer style there is, but I was thinking I'd make a rye ale of some kind my next all-grain project.
Rye IPA:s are good, I know that.
Rye ESB? Could be good.
Rye stout? No idea, any experience with this?

Suggestions and ideas for a good rye ale recipe are welcome.

a few months back I made a rye pale ale that was a 75/25 2-row/rye mix. I added some chinook and cascade hops to it and it was one of my favorite beers ever. I am also a huge fan of everything rye, and i think that i will increase the ratio of rye in the next batch. I don't know if you can get it in your area, but O'Malley's SunRyes Ale is pretty tasty and easy to get in the eastern Kansas area. Personally, i think rye should be added to everything

Ooh, I see that the Swedish alcohol monopoly currently carries a Danish rye stout. I've got to track down a monopoly store with them and pick it up.

You can get them to import stuff for you, but it's usually obscenely expensive. It's also possible to order alcohol from the European Union - but it's rarely reasonably priced when it comes to beer.

I love Rye as well. I've made a Red Rye IPA that is very good and a few other Rye IPAs. Also made a couple Rye Pale Ales attempting to clone Terrapin's Rye PA which is the best Rye beer out there IMO. Although the Ruthless Rye is very good.

I am thinking about a Chocolate Rye Pumpkin Ale for the fall this year...

Hoppy ambers are great. Rye saisons are very tasty. I have a rye stout in my dropdown that I enjoyed very much. Still trying to picture the ESB. No reason it wouldn't be good, I just can't picture it.

I've been thinking - I need to do some more tinkering with my mashing equipment, so maybe I could make this a partial mash? My biggest pot is 3 gallons, and the next one is about 2. Is that enough for a 5gal partial mash batch?

Got a recipe for that?

I had a very good Rye Porter earlier this year so that might be one idea.

Rye porter with a Belgian yeast. Look up peace tree rye porter. It's an awesome beer but I've never tried to clone it.

Yeah I made a pretty simple recipe that I thought turned out great.

5 Gal. Batch 60 min boil
8.5# 2-row
3.0# rye malt
0.5# cara-pils (in hind sight this probably wasn't necessary. Could've been .5 rye)

.5 oz. Chinook FWH
.5 oz. Chinook @ 45
.5 oz. Cascade @30
.5 oz. Cascade @15

Mashed @ 152 for an hour and then fermented with US-05 which is my favorite.

It wasn't the hoppiest, but it was absolutely delicious. I'm a huge fan of first wort hopping after that one. I called this one my "Hooker Rye". As a Chinook pilot we are often referred to as "hookers". So Chinook hops=Hooker ale.
