I did a step infusion BIAB on my last brew -- 15 min protein at 122, 45 min sacch at 154, then mashout at 168. At least that was the plan... my step to sacch left it at ~151 instead, so some of the...

Damp Rid is good, you could also try an Eva Dry -- it works exactly the same but it lasts forever, when it gets wet it changes color and you just plug it in for a while to dry it out.

If you have trouble finding caramel rye, you could always make some. Radical Brewing by Randy Mosher has instructions for making caramel malt out of anything malted.

American pale ales very rarely have any noticeable yeast character, with the exception of some peach/apricot esters that you see in beers like Heady from time to time. If that's the flavor you're...

Just 8oz lactose in the 2.5gal batch -- Beersmith says I should be able to hit 1.015, and Brewgr says 1.016 (thanks for the link BTW). At this point I'm thinking it's time to mix up a lively starter...

Of course, I could just go head-first in that direction and throw...

Ruuude.

Belair, I don't know of anyone trying it but I strongly suspect that dumping a bunch of Everclear in your beer will not do good things for its flavor. Bumping up ABV from 1.2 to 5 means...
