Rye! I'm halfway through the boil on a rye stout right now. I'm not a real big fan of most rye-ipa's but I think it's awesome in a stout.

Yes, thank you, thank you! It's even *better* than that when you taste it in real life! (actually, I don't have the heat cranked up that high...just enough for a tingle along with the smokiness, roastyness, and chocolatey goodness... )

Yes! In planning stages to try this with a buddy of mine who is a home meat smoker...

Now this sounds good too! I'm getting inspired to brew another stout very soon, especially since the colder months are on the way...

BTW Chess...you should post that recipe in the recipe section, and PM me when you do, I'd like to check that one out... (Or at least let me know how much rye you use in the grist...)

It's still in the experimental stages now, but if it turns out any good I'll definitely post it! Basically I just went with 25% rye, half of it malted and half flaked. Then your usual roasted barley, chocolate, crystal, and a touch of black patent. It should be under 7% so I'm just gonna do a month in primary and straight to bottles. Hopefully some will still be left by winter time

I was thinking of doing a porter or stout like this...any idea how much orange zest I would need?

Not quite sure. I was planning on using sweet orange peel and fresh zest but don't know where to start on amounts.
