I have been curious about rye beers since tasting a Hoss rye a while back and have been looking for a good recipe. After looking through all of the posts regarding this recipe I've decided to give it a try.
For those that have already brewed this beer, does anyone have any advice they can offer?
The one thing I have picked up on is the use of rice hulls when brewing with rye malts. Has anyone else used rice hulls when mashing this recipe or does the barley provide enough of a filter bed for the mash?

I didnt use rice hulls and it turned out fine. It is a bit cloudy but i only used a primary fermentation and didnt transfer it to secondary prior to bottling.

If you have ever had a stuck mash you will understand why you should use rice hulls. They are like the seatbelt in your car, you probably won't need it but you don't want to wait until it's too late to wish you had used it. I prefer to increase the hop additions by 20%. (.6oz per addition). I have used different yeasts and have colored the beer with beets. All batches turned out great. Similar to Hop Rod in flavor and recipe. I plan to brew this again within the next month. Some version or another is usually on tap at my house.

Bumped up the recipe by 25 percent because last time i ended up with a 4 gallon batch. I batched sparged and ended up with a OG of 1.067. Im not sure how my attenuation is gonna come out but hopefully i hit close to 80 percent.
I love this beer.

Im having trouble getting fermentation going with the higher gravity of 1.067 as the london ale yeast goes to 1.060. Its very slowly starting to kick.

Looks tempting! May brew this next weekend along with (possibly) an abbey dubbel. Nice to see all the followup examples and successes. May use US-05 and just rye malt (not flaked). Also considering moving the bittering charge to FWH. Pretty minor adjustments all in all.
