Grizzly Roggens Oregon Strong Rye
This recipe is based off the technique Oldsock uses for 90-shilling-scottish-stout-recipe.html with a detour towards rye-inspired ales.

Spicy Amarillo hops are complementing the rye in this one, balanced against a nice roasty background. This beer is geared towards deep rustic color, rough grainy flavors, and high alcohol content as a winter warmer.

Gather 1 gal of first runnings and boil separately during the 75 minute boil, adding back into the wort at flame out. I ended up with a little over 4 gallons of wort at 1.090 OG. If you end up with a lighter gravity at 5 gallons then yours might condition a little faster than mine. It'll certainly be strong enough.

I used a local speciality Oregon Select malt but you can use any 2 row or pale malt. The key here seems to be the roast, the caramelization, and the rye, combined with spicy hops and high attenuation.
