That's a ton of rye! How did it turn out? I have a wheat/rye beer that I bottled yesterday that was 30% rye and it's nice.

This one is becoming my go-to brew! I love the spiciness from both the rye and the Bavarian Wheat yeast. Sparging can be a process- so definitely don't skip out on the rice hulls. You could conceivably up the rice hulls to 1/2 #.

Sound really nice. My first rye had 3lbs. Second had 4lbs. Drinking that now and I think it's the best thing I've brewed to date. May be I'll get brave and try five pounds next time. If I don't finish it by the time I see you we might do a Rye Swap?

Here's mine.

I just brewed another batch of this yesterday, so it will not be ready- but I'll definitely send some your way when it is!

Has anyone tried a rye with a little caraway seed? I've got one planned and thought I'd try it that way.

Sounds really interesting. What amount were you thinking?

Not sure really, but it seems pretty potent, so I was thinking maybe a teaspoon for a 5.5 gallon batch, for a start.

The wife left me home alone with beer tonight. Been hitting this and that, but can't stay away from the Rye. Looks like I better do the same as you and get another batch going real soon.
