Licorice and rye? Those are some non-traditional ingredients IIRC....what is the thought behind those?

Also, I think that mash temp is way too high. I think something around 149 would be better.

Licorice is something I put in all my brews. It gives a nice silky finish. The rye should give it a nice dry finish. Silky dry high alcohol Koelsch goodness is what I am aiming for.

I could not remember if mashing at high temps or low temps creates a dryer finish. Any idea?

Mashing on the lower end (150 or lower) will yield a drier beer.
