I'd go oats if anything. Rye sounds like it would clash

I wish one of the online HBS would do scalable kits. Especially if they were tried and true good ones. Pick a kit, enter yout efficiency and volume into fermenter, click buy.

Bottom line, DIY anything makes you have a greater knowledge of that thing, and usually a greater respect for those pros who are doing it right. As evidenced by this article

After hearing Drew and Denny talk with Gigantic  (I think) about an IPA with a shot of Gin, I decided to try it out yesterday at the local tap house.

Damn!!! I think it's going to become a thing. Very tasty and makes the aroma really pop.

1. If you are an IPA guy, try it.

2. We need a name for this thing. Boiler Maker is taken. Maybe something in the vein of Irish Car Bomb. Portland Hop Bomb maybe?

Redirect... I think you got your answer, OP. Some of us homebrewers say no difference. Some say it is a 1 point difference but not a fermenability thing, a foam/foam retention thing. And you can gage that 1 point by comparing it to reducing HSA being 50 points.

I have no doubt. Even if it was proven fact "no head without mashout" I still have not seen any difference in that respect.

My input on this is to chew grain and rub/smell hops. Do this with each grain and hop you are about to use. Then see how that turns out in the finished beer. Then over time as you gain experience you will have a better chance of kind of imagining how ingredients work together and how they impact the final product. But only an educated guess...

I think learning them all at once is cool. You can see how they are different from each other that way. But you still need to find out the final result.

It's a bit of a stretch to expect to remember how grain tasted a month ago, so maybe refresh your memory at the time you try the beer. Same with hops. But how well do you expect to remember 30 grains or hops a year from now when you finally brew with them.

Either way, enjoy the journey. Give yourself a few years to learn it all lol

oh, for sure. I don't expect to get it all right away. But I do want to start being able to imagine recipes in my head by knowing some of the characteristics of the malts and such. I know this will come in time, but it helps me to be able to pinpoint specific flavors by just tasting the one malt at a time.
For sure! Go for it!

Once my mash is done (secret as to how) I move it to the BK and hit a wide open flames. I then add my 190F Sparge water, recirc/vorlauf, and move it to the BK. Total time about 7-10 minutes. It reaches a boil within about 10 minutes after that. So from mash temp to boil in 17-20 minutes ish. I could get my mash up to mashout temp by turning on a low flame and recirculating. That takes about 10-15 minutes. Then to BK then sparge then boil. Seems like mashout simply adds 10-15 minutes to the process, which would be to counteract the 10-15 minutes I added by doing a mash out. I've done a mash out a few times, I found it changed nothing in the final beer... FOR ME

I've found no difference between mash out or just moving to the kettle and flame on
