Only one thing is curiously missing and you will kick yourself if you leave it out- RICE HULLS. All that rye will do bad things for your sparge.

I'll probably do a two step partial mash -- 60 minutes at 122F and 60 at 155F -- to make the rye happy.

What are you trying to achieve with the multi-step? My Rabbit Run Rye Ale (in my pull-down) does a single-step infusion- and it's my favorite beer!

Just following that advice...
