I just love the rye flavor and my new mashtun design has eliminated stuck mashes using rye, wheat, corn, rice, sweet potatoe, graham crackers, breakfast cereals, etc..

I'm no beer judge but I'd score it 40/50. Nice color (not quite red), perfectly clear. Heck , I'm getting off the computer and getting one right now!
That is great to hear. I still have mine in the primary for a few more days. I'm looking forward to tying this one.

Any thoughts on what the optimal fermentation temp should be?

I ferment my ales around 67 to 68F if I can. Warmer enters into the fruity ester area that I'm not comfortable with...

Hey, piping in a bit late here, but your post got me thinking. It would be cool to mega-dose a good beer with red food coloring to make it a grossly red color, like bright red. Hide the flavor through a freaky color. Then take a sip and, wow, that's a good and surprising beer!

Some would say this is a sac-religious idea, but they can stick it

I really want to brew a red rye and this one looks great!

I have a question about the hops though. Putting the recipe through beersmith and a few other recipe calculators I keep coming up with right around 45-48 ibus. I'm wondering, how did you manage 36? I even set the AA% to 13 like you had posted.

Has anyone else who may have brewed this a few times have any insight on this? 10 or more ibus is definitely gonna change the flavor quite a bit I would assume. I'm a big hops fan but I don't wanna screw with the recipe without trying it the way it was posted first.

I don't have any Columbus hops and there are no LHBS within 90 miles so I would like to hear anyone's opinion on using Centennial hops as a substitute for the Columbus hops.

I plan on making this but already have some crystal 60 L, how much do you think that would change the color?

Well I brewed this last night with my crystal 60 as planned and the color seems pretty close to the original recipe. I also used Wyeast 1056 cause that's what the LHBS had, i'll post some results in a couple weeks.

EDIT: Just tansfered this to secondary and took my final gravity reading yesterday. The flat and room temp. sample my friends and I tasted was excellent! Can't wait for this one to be done. FG was 1.010 so my abv is looking to be 5.41%.

I brewed this up last night. This is my first rye ale, and I've gotta say, the smell of that bag of crushed grain in my car coming home from the LHBS was delicious. Is smelled even better in the mash tun.

This will be the first batch of beer that I've kegged to. A bunch of firsts!

The people questioning the IBU's... when I put the recipe in BeerSmith, I got 45.8 IBU's for my 5.5 gallon batch.
