EDIT: I am new to the HBT community, and hope it isn't too presumptuous of me to jump right in with a recipe for critique. I am a fan of Stone's Arrogant Bastard and bought some Chinook in bulk in anticipation of doing at least one batch. Never one to wait to run before I can walk, or even crawl, I decided to base my recipe on the CYBI AB clone, but coming off a good experience with a smoked peat rye porter I made this fall, I thought I would sub some rye for the two-row.

Here's what I came up with. Please let me know what you think:

1.0 pkg Thames Valley Ale (Wyeast Labs #1275) [1 Yeast 10 -

Mash Schedule: My Mash (no sparge)
Total Grain Weight: 15.50 lb
Name Description Step Temperat Step Time
Step Add 4.84 gal of water at 161.4 F 150.0 F 40 min
Mash Out Add 3.52 gal of water at 196.4 F 168.0 F 10 min

I'm using the Wyeast 1275 instead of the WLP007 since I have some washed and saved in the fridge and I thought it would be similar enough. I did my first no-sparge on my last batch and it stuck, but was saved by heating up the first runnings and adding them back to the mash. I think that was due to a grist a that may have been too fine for my system so, anticipating being stuck with the same grist from the available (borrowed) Crank-and-stein and given the known stickiness of rye, I am throwing in the rice hulls just to be safe.
