I've brewed a grand total of one beer (and it's still green) and I've never played with recipe creation before, so forgive me if this is a stupid question. I did do a search and wasn't able to find anything that quite addressed my question.
I've tried and really enjoyed Sierra Nevada's Ruthless Rye. I see that Northern Brewer has come out with a rye malt syrup, which is a boon to extract brewers that want to use rye.
With a grain bill of 70% 2-row, 20% rye malt, and 10% caramel 40%, this sounds very much like the grain bill of a typical rye IPA. My question is this: could you just use 12-12.25 lbs of this stuff as the grain bill for a respectable rye IPA?
