Hey guys, long time lurker and few time poster here. I've been working on a recipe for something I'm hoping will be awesome, an imperial black rye ipa, and was hoping for some feedback on it. Basically looking for a subtle but noticeable roasty background, good body /mouthfeel, with a huge hop kick and some rye spiciness. The hop flavor im looking for is something really dank/musky with some citrus or fruit-like twinge, or something like that.
Keep in mind this is a 2.5 gallon batch, BIAB partial mash. I'd make it all grain, but dont have a big enough mash tun currently.
Anyway, here it goes:
OG: ~1.089, FG: ~1.020, 153 IBUs

5 lbs 2-row base, 58.8%
1 lb flaked rye, 11.8%
1 lb extra light DME, 11.8%
8 oz flaked barley, 5.9%
8 oz crystal 60, 5.9%
4 oz carafa III, 2.9%
4 oz chocolate malt, 2.9%

Mashing at 150 for 60 mins

.5 oz columbus 60 min
.5 oz summit 60 min
.25 oz columbus 30 min
.25 oz summit 30 min
.25 oz summit 15 min
.25 oz topaz 15 min
.25 oz summit 10 min
.25 oz topaz 10 min
.25 oz columbus 5 min
.25 oz galaxy 5 min
.25 oz summit 5 min
.25 oz topaz 5 min
.25 oz topaz F.O.
.25 oz galaxy F.O.
.5 oz columbus F.O.
.5 oz summit F.O.

.5 oz columbus & .5oz galaxy dry-hop for 7 days

Hows it look? any feedback is appreciated!

Massive IBUs. But I'd taste a drop!

Just my opinion...I'd give it more rye...so that it totals 20-25% or so if you want the rye to be noticeable. Also I'd recommend more dry hops...a total of 3-4oz minimum.

Hmm, i wasnt sure about the rye, i think i will up it to 2 lbs. i made a rye pale with 1 lb and it wasnt too noticeable...
I already ordered my hops, so the amounts are set, how would you rearrange the schedule?

You could always use chocolate rye in place of the chocolate malt too

My last Rye IPA (not black IPA, though) had 3.5# (30%) and I thought it was quite tasty. That much may not be for everyone, though. As for the hops, honestly the only one I've tried out of your selection is columbus. I've heard good things about the others, though. I think multiple additions like that work pretty well....sort of like the continuous additions ala Dogfish Head 60-minute. For massive hop effect, I usually start with smaller quantities early in the boil and increase the additions as the boil progresses. I also hopburst most of the time for IPAs, starting my hops at 20 minutes and pile them in all the way to flameout. If you have a limited quantity, this may not be a very efficient use of your supply, though. I did skim over the part where you said it was a 2.5gal batch, so 1oz dry hops may be ok....I think I'd still double it for an imperial IPA.
