Hey Mike, is this a recipe that you've done? How'd it turn out? Any changes you’d make? I like the flavor that rye adds. I’ve put varying amounts into three of my batches over the last month, and plan a 1 ½ lb addition to this weekends IPA. Trouble with this hobby; it takes so darn long to see the actual results.

I hate to ask, but can anyone convert this to mini-mash or extract? i don't have the know-how yet. This sounds good with a heavy rye character. Just what i'm looking for!
