Looks like a very hoppy, drinkable ale to me.

I think that much RYE might make it a bit oily on the palate

Oh, no. The amount of rye is, if anything, a little on the low side for me. I love rye beers. I usually use rye malt over flakes though. I think the flavor is better with malt but you do have to crush it fine and should use a handful of rice hulls to prevent stuck sparges. I usually go 19-20% rye malt.

The 777 used two pounds of flaked rye- and it was perfect. I think you'll be fine with that much rye (but again, I like rye, too!)

I think you've got a very tasty beer there! I particularly like the combo of simcoe and cascade hops.

Try throwing in about 1/2 oz of Simcoe in as First Wort Hops, you will be amazed at the flavors and aromas you will get....

Thanks for all the advice. I planned on using flaked rye instead of malted because I heard it was easier. If my LHBS has malted, is that better for flavor? (i am a little worried about the crush since im sure they will just crush all the grains the same).

I'm guessing the flaked rye worked well? How much did you end up using? I am planning a Rye1.5 and just posted some Rye questions, oops!!

I used 1.5 pounds (14.3%). I was afraid this would be a little low, but it was right about where i wanted it. Had no problems in the mash either.
