Default Rye'd Overboard?

The last rye beer I tried failed to have any real rye flavor to me.
Here is the same recipe that I have almost doubled my rye and I want to know if 23% of my grain bill being Rye is crazy or a little odd. I'm ok with ODD. I just don't want to mess up the batch completely.


7.50 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 56.60 %
3.00 lb Rye Malt (4.7 SRM) Grain 22.64 %
1.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 13.21 %
1.00 lb Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain 7.55 %
0.75 oz Magnum [14.00 %] (60 min) Hops 33.2 IBU
1.00 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (30 min) Hops 12.2 IBU
0.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (20 min) Hops 4.8 IBU
0.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (10 min) Hops 2.9 IBU
0.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (5 min) Hops 1.6 IBU
1.00 oz Amarillo, Dry Hop

Any other changes please post away!

Thanks

Rugbrød uses 30% rye and is damn tasty. My rye pale uses 18% rye and still it's not the foreground quality. I think you're fine with 23%

I've had up to 30% in a rye ipa that was great. Use rice hulls.

I'm glad you asked this question beertoole. I had 12.5% in my batch last weekend, and I was worried that was a lot. Now that I see these responses I see I could have even added more. At least I know it's not too much!

And I agree with tgmartin000! Add rice hulls! My mash lauter almost got stuck. Not quite, but it was really slow. As a result, I added half a pound of rice hulls when I batch sparged, and it helped tremendously!

+1 to rice hulls and have some in reserve.
I had 7lbs of Rye in my last 5.75gal batch of Roggenbier and it tastes great. LHBS made a "mistake" in weighting and I am glad they did - nice head and body and aroma, but I am a rye addict.

I've made several batches of a rye IPA with 20% rye. The last batch I lightened a bit by replacing a pound of the pale malt with sugar. That worked out exactly as I hoped.

I don't use rice hulls.
