I just ordered this kit from Brewmasters. This will be my second AG brew and I am excited. I do have a few questions about this recipe pertaining to my system.
I am using a 10gal Cooler with a false bottom....

I am assuming this recipe calls for a "Batch Sparge" like the Haus Pale Ale. For Ed's Haus Pale Ale I ended up with more pre-boil volume than expected (7gal instead of 6.5gal) and missed my OG a little low.
After mashing should you stir prior to adding the 180 degree water or after or both?
Do you repeat this after adding sparge water? The HPA recipe had it sit with the 175 degree sparge water for 15 minutes. Should I stir after this 15 minutes?

My kit came with a Fly Sparge system but I have yet to use it. Batch Sparging seems so easy but I fear I am leaving some sugar behind somehow, somewhere.

nope sorry. Rye needs mashed and so does the crushed barley. Check out deathbrewer's partial mash method and see if you can manage that setup. It's pretty simple really. You're probably able to do it if you get a strainer bag.

Has anybody ever tried dry-hopping this? I brewed it with chinook and saaz and have a couple ounces of chinook left that I'm planning on dry hopping it with. Not sure how much to use though?

Brewed this last Friday, came out with an OG of 1.080 lol, 80% efficiency. This should turn out great, thanks for the recipe.

I am brewing this tomorrow but I am going to kind of wing it when it comes to the hops. I have some random hops in the freezer at the moment.

I probably will not be around much anymore. I had to close my restaurant and get a real job so i do not have the time to hang out online all day.

What does the tett bring to this party?

As a bittering hop, it adds a spiciness that goes nicely with the rye.
