Mash 60 minutes at 152'F. Primary at 60'F. This is on the low side for US-05 so fermentation will be slow and gentle. Allow to rise to 65'F after initial fermentation activity begins to slow. After two weeks keg with 1.8 oz priming sugar and condition/carb two weeks before tapping.

This is a very unusual and refreshing beer. It was intended to be a rye pale ale as the IBU and hop schedule suggests, I did not know that 20% rye would completely dominate the flavor the way it did. It worked out as it was very tasty nonetheless. The rye gave a tart, fruity, slightly spicy flavor which actually blended well with the flavor of the hops. American 'C' hops are probably a must with this. The tartness is so strong that I actually suspected an infection. The high bitterness also helped accentuate the spicy notes from the rye. No pics but it looked almost identical to Blue Moon, golden in color with a permanent haze and a great frothy head.

This is a great beer to brew if you want to get an idea of what flavors rye can contribute to a beer.

Thanks for posting this. I'm working on a spicy rye session beer. I used 30% Rye and it came out solid, next batch I'll have to work in some of your ideas.

Question, why the two types of Rye, (malt/flaked)?

Rye malt is diastatic, flaked rye adds more body/mouthfeel but does not contain enzymes

In general I feel 20% flaked malt would make for a tougher sparge

Other than that, no particular reason I just prefer a bit of variety

Great thanks for the tip. I do biab so don't have to worry abort the sparge, and adding flaked rye sound like it contribute exactly what i'm looking for.
