Did a bitterness comparison with another IPA mid 60s IBU and indeed the Rye IPA has similar bitterness. Think the rye malt distracted the taste buds.

Yeah, I brewed at least 12-15 test batches before settling on this recipe. It's hard to know what to change for your tastes until you brew it the way it's designed.

I've got this recipe on the horizon. I recently did a rye-ish beer with rye flakes and it was mildly spicey and good (will do it again) but I just ordered what I need for this one and hope to get it in the next 2-3 weeks.

Had the rye IPA whilst making (and eating) fried fish burritos. This is a great brew with food since it doesn't overwhelm. Good one Denny.

This is one of the few beers I really can't wait to brew again. I had thoughts of doing it this weekend, but I think I'll do it next so I can use Denny's yeast. Safale 05 version was delicious but I want to try it the way it originally intended.

Darn, what a nice thing to say! Thanks!

I really should bottle one for a friend. It is so good I don't want to share. I've been nursing this keg for a while. I will brew it again. And again. And again.

Denny what are your experiences with underpitching 1450? I didn't think I'd have the opportunity to brew this weekend but it turns out I can. I will get a starter going this but i'm going to make a 11 gallon batch so I'm sure i won't reach the total I should be going for.

EDIT: Also, you batch sparge correct? So for FWH you just throw the hops in the kettle and batch sparge normally? It seemed to work well last time i brewed it but I am very curious to your process with this beer. It will be brewed quite often in my house i'm sure.

Yes, you're correct on both the batch sparging and the FWH technique. As to underpitching, I'm afraid I can't tell ya because I haven't done it! Sorry....generally underpitching will lead to fewer esters, but I have no personal experience.

Thanks for the insight, do you let the flameout hops steep at a certain tempo before cooling or just cool immediately?
