I recently made a rye pale. Yooper instructed me to best utilize the rye for a good taste using 2 lbs in a 5 gal batch. I pushed my brewing expenses and cut it to 1 3/4 lbs. It’s not rye enough. It seems time is working against me here.
So how much is too much? Or is there a such thing? Can I use 40%?
This was my 5.5 gal recipe:
5 lbs pilsen LME (FO)
1 3/4 lbs rye
1 3/4 lbs 2 row
1/2 lb crystal 20
1/2 lb crystal 40
1/4 lb light DME (starter)
1 oz Mt Hood (5.8%) @ 60/15/5 mins
I want a stronger rye punch, but don’t want to overdo it. I assume you can…
