Obviously it's that hops tape that makes all the difference. Helps the hops aroma "stick" around longer.

On the iPad, my typing is even worse than usual!  OTOH, hop tape....hmmmmmm...... ;)

Another vote for Logmein.  I also use it to control my laptop from my iPad and it meets my 2 main criteria for software....easy and effective.

I just sent Janis an email about this.

AFAIAC, you NEVER want unconverted starch in your beer.

Diane, has anyone ever told you that you bear a striking resemblance to Clayton Moore?   :D

In real life, she has no Native American sidekick, though.

I would also include a protien rest at 131 for 10 minutes. Where did you get the pecan smoked malt?

I don't think that's really necessary, myself.

I'm willing to bet it's stratification, as Keith mentioned.

Is that whole or pellet? Or does it matter?

Yeah, but look at the grist....this isn't my recipe, it's the OP's.

Oops... :-[ I got indignant for nothing!  Can't blame me for associating ALL rye IPAs with you... :P

I appreciate your outrage defending my recipe.  ;)

And I absolutely don't doubt your experience, either, Richard.  I think it's a subjective matter of perception combined with the fact that different hop varieties produce different effects.  BTW, most of my kegs are on tape for a couple months.  I kicked a keg of Rye IPA yesterday that was on for 11 weeks and the dry hop aroma was still great.

Hops seem fine to me.

I tried brewing this and ran into problems hitting mash temp, etc. Not a good brew day. Needless to say, flavor is off, not what I expected. Liked the spicyness but something is off. My main thoughts on this though are on the hops. I used Columbus and Chinook but hadn't really used these before. I was mainly trying to add to the spicyness of the rye and didn't really want to add citrusy flavors so stayed away from the amarillo, citra, etc. I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.

Est OG: 1.058
Est. FOG: 1.015
IBU: 67.5
Color: 16.5
ABV 5.6%
Batch size: 6 Gal

9# Pale Malt
1.75# Rye Malt
1# Crystal 40L
0.75# Munich Malt 10L
0.5# Victory Malt
0.5 # Crystal 120L
0.25# Chocolate Pale
0.5# Rice hulls

Mash @ 154, 60 min

Hop schedule:
Columbus (15.4%) - 0.8 oz 60 min
Columbus - 0.5 oz 15 min
Chinook (11.8%) - 0.5 oz 15 min
Columbus - 0.5 oz 7 min
Chinook - 0.5 oz 7 min
1 oz each of Chinook/Columbus - dry hop 7 days
Yeast: London ale III (Wyeast 1318) - Ferment at 68 - 7 days.

Overall, I was not hitting my numbers and it tastes like I have some off flavors in there so I might just try it again as is first, but wanted to get some feedback as well.

Could be the British yeast.  I don't care for British yeasts at all in my Rye IPA recipe and I've heard others say the same thing.
