I hear ya. I've taken to keeping the same BU:GU ratio instead of looking at IBUs. Hopville makes it very easy. I'm writing a session (1.035 OG) Cali Common recipe right now, and keeping a similar hop bill would throw it WAY off track.

I suspected as much. Glad to hear reality conforms to theory on this one.

UGH! I was going to try this with Nottinghamor s-04. When I put the ingredients into the Brewbuilder at BMW for my last order (after converting to AG and 2.75 gallon batch), I switched the amounts of rye and caramunich! All the grains are mixed in, so there's no cutting back on the amount of caramalt in this. Trying to salvage it, I scaled up to 4 gallons, added some rye and chocolate, but there's still a lot of caramalt. If I mash low (148-150), might this work? I know it'll be a different beer, but will it still be OK?

I brewed 10 gallons (AG) of this back on 10/16. I kegged it on 11/17.

It tastes really good. I agree that the rye probably adds some of that peppery/spiciness to the beer. Smells great for being as young as it is, though not getting as much of that diacetyl, but maybe that will come. Again, very young beer.

Great beer DeathBrewer - Perfect for the Thanksgiving crew coming over on Thursday!

I was trying to decide what to brew next....a rye pale ale or a stout. Thanks for helping me make a decision. This recipe looks great!

After all these years, this beer is still fantastic! I brewed a 20 gallon batch to test out my new system. The only thing that's a little disappointing is that it didn't come out as dark as usual. I want it blacker than the blackest black and there was brown around the edges. BROWN, I TELL YOU!

Not sure what I'm talking about in the original post. Even with all the rye, this is a straight-up Irish Dry Stout.
