Some tweaks if you should decide to make them:

-Cut the Crystal Rye to 2 or 3 lbs. and add some regular Rye Malt.
-Use a more characterful yeast that will accentuate the malt.
-Mash around 153 F
-Bitter to 20 IBUs with the first addition.
-Add the rest of your hops (as necessary) at 15 min followed by a 2 oz. flameout of Simcoe. No dryhop.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Thoughts on WLP041? I was going back forth between the two.

Never used it, but going off of the notes, I would say no. Choose something lower in esters/fruityness.

http://www.rebelbrewer.com/shoppingc...2d-WLP013.html
http://www.rebelbrewer.com/shoppingc...east-1275.html

Maybe any of those three?

And on second thought about this advice...

"Add the rest of your hops (as necessary) at 15 min followed by a 2 oz. flameout of Simcoe. No dryhop."

...if you really want earth and pine to come through, focus on Columbus or Chinook early on (60/30), no middle additions, Willamette at flameout, and Simcoe in the dryhop.
