Default All-Grain - Northern Lights Juniper Rye Pale Ale

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: US-05
Yeast Starter: no
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25
Original Gravity: 1.051
Final Gravity: 1.010
IBU: 40.4
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60 min.

Tasting Notes: Juniper comes through at the end, Rye is notiveable but not too drying.

This was the first beer I've made using Rye and/or Juniper berries. I think it came out pretty well and I'll be making it again when the juniper is ripe for picking.
Recipe based on 75% brew house efficiency

7 lbs American 2-row
1.75 lbs Rye
1 lb of Vienna
.5 lb Crystal 60
4oz Flaked Barley
Mash grains at 150F with about 4 gallons of water for 1 hour.

.75 oz Magnum 10.6% aa for 60 min boil
.5 oz Cascade 6.1%aa last 15 min of boil
.25 oz Chinook 11.4% aa last 15 min of boil
1 tsp of Irish Moss last 15 min of boil
1 oz crushed Juniper berries last 15 min of boil
at flame out add:
.5 oz Cascade 6.1% aa
.25 oz Chinook 11.4% aa

Chill to pitching temps and sprinkle US-05 yeast into fermenter, aerate as usual.

This recipe got 3rd place in the "West Division" 2011 HBT Competition for category 21A

Have you had any experience using juniper in an amber or copper ale?

I have not but I am pretty sure it would work quite well. I'm considering doing a Juniper Kolsch right now, hopefully the juniper isn't too overpowering for the style.

Im thinking a load of caramunich and honey malt with munich and vienna as base. Magnum bittering, hallertau aroma, wyeast 2565 or white labs kolsch yeast.
Og: 1.08ish with juniper in the mash and perhaps in the boil. Srm 20 ish ibu 20 ish. Mash 154ish. Im thinking that the juniper will play nicely with the caramel chewiness and the rye. What do you think?

Paul, that sounds pretty good. Let me know how it turns out if you make it. I'm interested to see how mashing the juniper works out for you.

Plans fell through. I ended up picking up two couches and driving them halfway across the city.

Brew day is tomorrow.

Will post results.

Well brew day went really smoothly (first brew day in an apartment on an electric range). I got a stuck sparge from the thick mash and the rye, but after blowing back through the manifold and psuedo-fly sparging I was able to hit all of my numbers!
I put 0.5 oz crushed juniper in the mash for 30 min. That didn't do much, so I added another 0.5 oz at 15 in the boil. The juniper is really subtle, so I am going to see how the fermentation plays out on the flavors. I might add a half ounce to an ounce in the secondary or as a tea at bottling time.

I don't have internet at my new place (been posting from my phone), but when I do I will start a dedicated thread, and a recipe if it turns out good!

Would flaked rye work ok? Im thinking about making this but only have flaked rye. Im thinking the rye and juniper would show more with age as the hops mellow out? Also, do you think there are certain hops that work better with juniper,i have different hops and right now i have alot of german and noble hops but have a few american type.
Have you saved any of bottles if you condtion to see how they age and develope?
