Ive revised my recipe a bit, its around 20% rye now, and i focused the additions at 60, 15, 5 and F.O.. Hop bursting is focusing on under 20 min additions, right? Also i may increase the rye to the 30% range, i definitely want it distinct. Thoughts?

Yes, hopbursting usually starts at 20 mins or so. I think it looks pretty distinct overall....brew it up!

I reformulated my recipe, adding 2 oz of hops (1 each galaxy and topaz), and changed the chocolate malt to chocolate rye malt.
Here's version 2:
OG: ~1.087 FG: ~1.019 IBUs: 140
Grains:
4 1bs 2-row 47.1%
2 lbs flaked rye 23.5%
8 oz C60 5.9%
8 oz flaked barley 5.9%
4 oz carafa III 2.9%
4 oz chocolate rye 2.9%
1 lb xldme 11.8%
Hops:
1/2 oz columbus 60 min
1/4 oz columbus and 3/4 oz summit 20 min
1/4 oz columbus, 1/4 oz summit, 1/2 oz galaxy and 1 oz topaz 10 min
1 oz topaz, and 1/2 each of columbus, galaxy, and summit F.O.
1/2 oz each columbus and summit, and 1 oz galaxy dry-hop 7 days

Also, thinking of using nottingham yeast, as i heard its better with colder temps, and my fermenting has been a bit cold lately.

I'm naming this beast "Quothe the Raven", how's she look?

Picked up my grains, and got an extra oz of rakau hops, anyone have any experience dryhopping with these? Im thinking half at F.O. and the other half in the dryhop

I've used Rakau for both. You'll find them similar to the Galaxy, I think. I'd prefer them as a late addition versus dry-hop, but they are great either way.
