This is called a roggenweizen. Sounds good.

How is the Rye on this? I was thinking of brewing this but wanted to see if maybe bumping it to 2lbs of rye

Yes, I think that would be great. Next time I brew this, which will be soon with summer coming up, im gonna bump the rye up to 2-3 pounds. I really like the rye flavor with the hefe yeast.

Sorry, don't want to be a thread necro, but I did one of these with partial mash last month, and just broke open the first few bottles to try it out.

General consensus is that it is VERY drinkable, but it really has a sour tinge. Is that the rye? I didn't think it had that sour of a feel in the rye/barley bends I have tried.
