Hydraulic - is there something about a rye beer that really shows the benefit of good water chemistry?I really like the pungent rye flavor in many beers. I am not so sure water amendment does much to accentuate rye tastes but it does wonders for the hops and the malt. I look for the hop burst. The flavors and aroma are much better.
If you end up needing to ferment mostly ales (~mid 60's) and are having trouble with either the cost or size of a refrigerator or mini cooler that will fit your carboy or bucket, I highly recommend the below Igloo cooler for fermentation. I was able to keep my wheat ale right at 65 for 2 weeks with very minimal tweaking (adding ice cubes periodically). Good luck!
