1 oz. Black Patent
1.5 lbs Flaked rye
1/2 oz. Columbus Pellet @ 60

0.5 oz. EKG @ 15
0.5 oz. Fuggles @ 5
1/2 oz. EKG + 1/2 oz. Fuggles + 1/2 oz. Cascades
Single Infusion, double batch sparge Target OG 1.042
3 gallons @ 165F with pH 5.2
Mash 151F for 60 minutes

Kegged for dry hopping after 14 days.
Dry hopped each hop for one week.
Primed with 4 oz. corn sugar
Tapped 2 weeks later.
IBUs are high for this gravity, but it worked out nicely. This is a good recipe for using up small amounts of leftover hops.
