    I use about 8%, but don't throw it in the mash till the last 20 min. I also add a cup of rum

    How did you get the wife to give you a "kitchen pass" on this project? It sounds awesome, but

    What about a beer made of ingredients entirely from a dollar store (except the yeast)? Fruit,

    Try throwing 2 oz oak for last week of fermenting & 1 cup of rum per 5 gallons @ packaging. I
    created a pretty mean oatmeal stout & did this at the end. Definitely a winner!Cheers!

    Yes, use at least 15% rye if you want to be able to taste it IMO.Thanks, I'm hearing you don't
    want to go too much over 15% rye due to intensity & stuck mash probability. I talked to Matt

    I'm working on a recipe for an Imperial Chocolate Rye Porter. I was planning on only using 5%
    rye malt (this will be my first rye beer). Any suggestions?

    I think they do the distributing only. But not 100% sure
