Default All-Grain - Redheaded Rye-child

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: American Ale II

Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: one liter
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25
Original Gravity: 1.055

Tasting Notes: Full bodied, malty sweetness balanced with enough rye flavor.

My goal for this recipe was initially to make a Rye Pale Ale or IPA but then I figured that has been done over and over again so I decided my base style would be an American Amber Ale. With that in mind, I wanted more of a full bodied sweetness that balances out with rye flavor. To give credit where credit is due, I lifted the Special B and C-120 combo from Ken's Homerun Red on the Northern Brewer forum.

This is what a red should look like! I have came across far too many recipes for "Reds" that are amber/orange. Many commercial Red ales fail miserably in that department as well. I'm gonna have to draw some inspiration from your grainbill. Thanks
