It's a crystal malt with 6L color according to NB. So I'd say no, you'll never tell the difference, especially with 5% of it in the recipe and given the hoppiness of an APA.

Pretty hilarious stuff. Glad I'm not in that camp. I could see too high FG being a big problem for people brewing IIPA. I used a decent amount of crystal, but needed it with the 85% AA. I most...

Kansas City Beer Store

Work will take me to Kansas City in August--and because of flight prices, most likely by car. Which is great! Why? Because I can stock up on beer I can't get in Wisconsin. Anyone in the KC area...

I can't believe contact time of 3-4 days of 2oz of chips would impart much flavor, much less an unbearable tannin flavor. My BB stout soaks on 12oz Maker's Mark and 2oz Medium Toast Cubes for 3...

When making your recipe, if you want 5 gallons in your carboy I'd make the recipe for something like 6 gallons b/c you'll have a healthy loss that remains in the kettle due to hop debris.

5 or 6oz. is going to be light for an IIPA--even if they are high alpha hops. 5-6oz. seems more in line for a regular strength IPA. For example, BierMuncher's award winning IIPA...

Yeah, when doing 25% rye I use 1 lb of rice hulls. Not sure that is necessary, but I figure it's a cheap insurance policy and I've had no problems with a stuck mash.

Overall I like the recipe--looks like a tasty beer. If possible, I would suggest upping your rye to maybe 2 lbs or even more if you enjoy rye flavor. At least to my palate I have a hard time...
