Rye IPA

Looking to use up a bunch of specialty grains I have laying around. I need to go get some base malt and yeast and I recently came into some whole leaf Chinook hops so I threw together this recipe. Was thinking of an IPA, maybe with some rye. Any thoughts:

6 lbs Marris Otter
4 lbs rye malt
.5 lb caravienne
.5 lb melanoiden
.5 lb special B
1 oz whole leaf Chinook (60 min)
1 oz whole leaf Chinook (20 min)
1 oz whole leaf Chinook (5 min)
US-05 ale yeast

Also thought about ditching the rye and just using all MO but I’m on the fence.

This will work, but I’d throw in some rice hulls with that much rye malt.

I’d lose either the melanoidin or the Special B. Also, I’ve found that I don’t care for the combo of MO and rye. You might.

Oh no! I was planning a rye best bitter early next year. :cry:
How about golden promise?

never done Rye with MO - but i have done Rye, Golden promise, and rolled oats with chinook hops (style: pale ale/summer ale). It turned out to be a very nice spring beer. Personally, i thought the malts complimented each-other

It’s all about personal tastes, huh? Personally, I find that a very malty malt, like MO or GP, fights with the rye. Just my opinion.

Since you are the King of Ryevana* I will certainly take your opinion into consideration.
So, just plain 2-row? How about an american pale ale malt?

Hey, man, it’s your call and you won’t know til you try it. That’s how I made my decision.

definitely about personal taste. Although the rye summer beer with GP was great. Denny’s rye IPA might be the best rye beer i’ve ever made.

:cheers:
