Interesting story behind that rye. I ordered a wine kit from Northern Brewer, instead they shipped me an AG roggenbier kit. Now I had just made a roggenbier and wasn't a huge fan, but I could let all that malt go to waste. So I used the 5# of rye for this Rye IPA and the rest of the malt (mostly Munich) in a stout that is currently conditioning.
So yes I went a little overboard on the rye, but felt it would be a nice experiment. And I can't say I'm disappointed.
