Guys, thanks for the input about the Rye, I will definitely adjust the amount to a couple of pounds. As for the rest of the bill, I was having some issues with hitting the acceptable color if I yank the roasted barley, thinking now I will play around again and see what i can come up with minus the barley. As for BeerSmith, I know I need to adjust the efficiency still, still kind of figuring out the equipment set up, righ now I have it set up for the 10 gallon mash tun (cooler) with the big pot, but I will only be making 5.5 gallon batches, so when I get that finished I will adjust the rest. I will post new version when I get a chance!

the 30 min cascades i would bump to 15 mins then bump 20 mins to 10-5 mins. they are not doing a lot of bittering at 30 and and your losing a bunch of flavor boiling that long.
