I just brewed this, it's going under CO2 tonight. I only did a 60 min boil so my preboil volume was only 6.5. My FG came out to be 1.050.

My grain bill was a bit different, I used this one:
So where you have 600g each of rye and munich I had 1lb munich and 2lbs rye.
Dry hopped with amrillo at 70 for one day then let it sit at about 55 for 6 more. I did two weeks in the primary and then dry hopped for a week in my corny.

I am interested to see how this is coming along, it was good out of the fermenter but didn't have as much rye flavor as I thought it would. Will see how it comes along in time.

Oh, and I never use any gypsum or water treatments they discuss. I just filter my water for every brew.

I didn't brew this one, but Tasty had a keg of it available at the BN Winter Brew's Fest earlier this year and I give it a big thumbs up. It was probably my favorite of all the homebrews they had on tap, with the possible exception of Nathan Smith's Old Ale.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)

I brewed this one up yesterday; had a FG of 1.056. It was fermenting away nicely this morning. I will report back on how it turns out.

I brewed something very similar to this. Used columbus instead of Magnum and Willamette instead of Fuggles and EKG.

I emailed spike awhile back and got the recipe. The hops are a bit different from what your recipe is but very similar. Sub Warrior for Magnum, and 2 oz of Amarillo per 5g for dry hopping. He also has it a 38 IBU's.

The version I made came out really well. I think there could have been a bit more rye though.

Sorry I always forget to update.

I really liked it, thought this version had more hops then the Terrapin version I have had. Thought this would be a beer that the girls would like (as terrapin rye is) but this was a bit hoppy for them. Maybe if I let it sit for a couple weeks longer the hops would have faded but I had a party and the keg was kicked when it was about 4 weeks old.

i brewed this as well and it was the best beer i have ever brewed (although i do LOVE Terrapin's Rye Pale Ale). With that said, i agree that this is hoppier but i will also say that i liked this beer even more than the commercial version because of it.

This is a GREAT commercial beer and even better recipe. LOVE IT!!
