My sulfate level is 57ppm and I don't consider that much at all. You want to get to at least 200 ppm. I have one on tap now that I tried 300 ppm. Maybe a bit much, but not bad. Adding the gypsum will accentuate the bitterness and make the finish drier.

I'll have to brew this again. First time came out spectacular, truly the best beer brewed to date. The second time I was at a rolling boil when I realized I had left all my salts out of the mash. I was pissed.

Thanks Denny. Planning on brewing a ten gallon batch tomorrow.

So I brewed it and the taste is awesome! I used some chocolate wheat malt which made it more of a brownish orange. I've revised the recipe to give it more of a deep red color. I've read about using Roasted Barley. I used it once in an IPA and it ruined it. I read about either cold steeping or adding when sparging. What's your take on both methods? Here's the revised recipe:

10 lb 2 row
2 lb rye
3/4 lb melanoiden
3/4 lb Crystal 10
1/2 lb Crystal 80
1/4 lb roasted barley

I mash at 148

I just brewed my first batch of this today and am really looking forward to tasting it in a few weeks.

Kegged this today with a FG of 1.012. Unfortunately, my beer fridge only holds two kegs. It will be a few days before this one goes in, but eventually I will get to taste it.

Tasted a sample tonight as I was bottling some from the keg. It tastes great. I think we will enjoy this one. Thanks for recipe and advice Denny.

i made the extract kit form nb of this. i did it as per the directions aside from a bit more time w/ the columbus dry hop (mis-read directions)-... it finished @ 1.020 (high?), it tastes amazing. i and a few others had it back to back w/ ruthless rye and everyone loved denny's wry over sierra. it did seem quite dark for an ipa but that's typical w/ extract. i will be making this again!

1.020 is a bit high but in the ballpark.

My all grain version ended high but I've noticed the same thing on a few beers I've done with 1450. However, mine sometimes start higher than the recipe shows.
