Have yet to try either Ė that will happen tonight!

I'll be substituting some of the hops in the recipe above with ones I have on hand - for example, Nugget for the Columbus, and Cascades for the Centennial. Iím also using White Labs' Dry English Ale (WLP007) yeast because, after this batch, I plant to brew an Imperial Russian Stout and want to rack it onto the yeast cake from this batch.

Iím really looking forward to sampling the real thing tonight and to see how my version of this turns out in a couple of monthís time!


Okay, I just had the Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye and all I can say is... MmmmBoyHowdee!!! This is one hoppy beer - I love it! Perfect for Summer, IMHO! I really like the Dogfish Head 90-minute IPA, too. But I probably made a mistake in having it after the Hop Rod Rye - it seems maltier, but a bit tamer in comparison.

My clone recipe is going for broke - according to QBrew, it's going to end up around 16 SRM's, 8.0% ABV, an OG/FG of 1.079/1.020 and 121 IBU's. I'll believe it when I see - er, taste it!
Rubarb, did you ever brew your extract Rye? How was it? Could you post recipe?

I know this is an old thread but...

I brewed this last year and was quite happy with the results. This year I plan on doing it again only this time doing partigyle. For the second batch I plan on doing an oktoberfest with 1 oz hallertau for 60, 0.5 for 30 and 10. I plan on adding up to 5 lb of munich LME to get to the desired OG of around 1.050. This will be my first partigyle brew, and I was thinking it'd be about 70% eff for the first batch and then maybe 20% for the second. If I'm off on it then I have extract to go with anyway.
