.75 pounds Rye
.25 pounds flaked rye


1 ounce Columbus at 60

1 once Amarillo at 15

My first impression is that there is a lot of light Crystal malt, which is going to lead to a rather sweet IPA. I would sub out some of the C40 for something like Munich or Vienna - this will give you the malt profile without so much of the sweetness. I also think you should bump up the dry-hops.

Good call. I'll pick up some vienna on the way home and bump up the dry hops, I've always been a bit timid with those and noticed some lacking aroma lately.

I like the combo, the rye will be nice, it's kinda spicy and very refreshing. Good luck!

Personally, I'd bump up the rye. I think the amount you have in there is quite subtle. As a reference, Bear Republics Hop Rod Rye uses 20% of the grist as rye. I'd probably also drop the wheat, but that's just my preference (the rye will aide in head retention).

So did you wind up making this recipe? How'd it come out? What were the final numbers?

Can't remember what the final numbers were, this was so long ago.

But it was damn good. I've used rye (both flaked and unflaked) a lot more since then.

Personally, I think the more the merrier. I made a Rye IPA with something like 12 lbs of LME, 2 pounds of Rye steeped, .5 lb of flaked rye, and like a 1 lb of crystal 40. i added close to a pound of hops to that bad boy, it was great!
