Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: US-05   
Yeast Starter: Rehydrate   
Batch Size (Gallons): 6   
Original Gravity: 1.054   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 49   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 6.6 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days at 67F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 days at 70F   
Tasting Notes: See below   

This was inspired by a Brewing Network interview on 5-18-08 of Spike Buckowski of Terrapin Beer.

All the components are on their website. The malt percentages are straight from the interview and the hops amounts were from a BN listener clone.

Differences:
-I used Bravo for the bittering, it is what I had, they use Magnum.
-I used US-05 for convience. They use Wyeast 1272 (see interview here).



Process:
-I mashed at 154F with about 1.25 qts/lb. Mashout and sparge at 170F.
-Fermented at 67F.
-After about 14 days I racked to a secondary (didn't have a keg open), added gelatin.
-After about a week I added 1 oz of Amarillo pellets. Let those sit for 10 days.
-Kegged and force carbonated to 2.5 volumes.

Tasting note:
-Color is spot on. Mine is still a little hazy since it has only been cold in the keg for a week.
-My version has a bit of a stronger hop noise and more intense hop flavor. I am pretty sure that if I got a fresh bottle to compare it would be pretty darn close.
-This is an excellent pale ale. Great warm-weather, refreshing beer. Very complex hop and malt flavor with enough background rye to really add a crisp, spicy finish.

OK, which one is it?

I have this same beer force carbing in a keg right now. My hops are a little different than yours though, I used Target for my bittering hop. I brought a sixer back from Florida so I could try a side by side comparison. I really like Terrapin's rye so I have high hopes for mine. Yours looks good, I'm going to tap mine asap.

You're speakin my language. I love the Terrapin Rye and drank many pints of it in Athens. I will put this on my "to brew" list...

Brewing this one today. I forgot to get the Amarillo for the dry hops but I have a week or so for that. I love Terapin's Rye Pale and I hope to make the brewery tour when my daughter starts back at Georgia this fall. Thanks for posting the recipe Beerrific.

Oops! Forgot to start heating my sparge water so I am going to have an extra long mash time.

Give this a try. You will need to preform a partial mash to convert both the munich and rye. Just mix all the crushed grain together in your bag and steep with about 1.5qts/lb. at around 150F for 30-45 minutes. Rinse with some warm (~170F) water.

I plan on brewing this in a few weeks with a few slight tweaks to the hop schedule based on what I have on hand (Cent for Cascade). Would you alter this at all based on the CYBI it recipe that came out? Or is it already close enough?
