Rye Barley Wine

Hey folks. Looking to make a rye barley wine and looking for a little input. Do I just make rye around 10% of my grain bill or do I go a different path?

Here is my original barley wine grain bill

4 lbs (37.2%) 2 row
4 lbs (37.2%) Maris Otter
12 oz (7%) Crystal 60
8 oz (4.7%) Crystal 120

1.5 lbs (14%) cane sugar

My experience is that you need at least 15% rye to even tell it’s there. I’d replace 1/2 the 2 row with rye.
