I' on a saison kick. I was planning a 50% barley, 50% wheat saison but I gots to a thinking and I think rye might add a nice bit of spiciness to the saison.
How much rye can be in a grain bill with out ruining it?

I'm doing 5 gallons so I was thinking:

6 lbs of pilsner
6 lbs of rye

is this way too much?

Nope. That sounds like fun. I know guys that go 60% rye.

I do a 60/40 munich/rye ale that is awesome, but the munich definitely is the dominant flavour. Using a very pale malt like pilsner will really let the rye shine through and it sounds great!

I know I'm throwing in a pound of rye in my next saison. Sure hope it makes an appearance in the taste department. Be sure to let us know how this one works out!

Same here. I did miss that article, if you want to fill in the blanks.
