On first glance, I'd up the rye a bit to 1lb; I worry that a half pound of it will just vanish behind the extracts. That said, I like the taste of rye ;). I've brewed this rye saison recipe (https://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=238831) multiple times and have been very happy with the 25% ratio--of course, that one's all grain, so it's not exactly a 1:1 comparison.

I'll up it to 1lb. Thanks for the feedback! I'll report back on how it turns out. I think I'll do one gallon with a touch of spice (seeds of paradise etc) too...
