This is one that has come into regular routine here, even though our Terminator stout clone is popular too...

The recipe is essentially a stout with wheat and rye.

2-row 11.5 lbs
Rye Malt 8 oz
Carafa 2 8 oz
Wheat LME 2 lbs.

(note: we used raw barley and light LME for part of the original, and it was tasty)

60 min boil
Willamette .5oz 5.0 AA
Magnum 0.15 oz 13.5 AA
Citra 0.15 oz 11 AA

5 minutes
Citra 1 oz
Willamette 0.5

Mash at 138 for 45 mins, then raise to 152 slowly until conversion is done.

Ferment at ~60 degrees Fahrenheit for 1+ weeks.

This beer is a little bit sweeter than I usually go, but the hops and the malts work well together.
