[quote=“mlsouth”]What do you think?
7.5 lb: 2 -row
1 lb: Munich I
2 lbs: Rye Malt
.5 lb: Crystal 40 (should I up it to one full pound?)
Amarillo @60: 25 IBU (1 oz) (might back off to 20 IBU)
Cascade @5: 5 IBU (.5 oz)
Sa-05 (only American I have on hand and I like the high attenuation which leaves dryness I think accentuates the Rye)
Mash Recommendations? Have heard to add in Protein Rest to help with Rye. Thoughts?[/quote]
That’s gonna be yummy. You’ll probably be alright with the mash but you may consider some rice hulls. I’d mash a bit higher temps w/ that amount of rye.
I would go 1# C40. Also, maybe more aroma hops? I like Amarillo as bittering hop, too. Also I would shoot for 44 -50 ibus. Maybe a little Columbus or Magnum FWH 10 point bump? That’s all personal opinion. Your recipe will be nice as is and you’ll really notice the rye bite.
