Now, take that description quattlebaum just gave and use your favorite IPA hops and you have a killer Rye IPA. Just sayin!

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!
Mr Malty drops the viability to 26% while yeastcalc drops it to 47% for the same date. They used to use the same formula but looks like yeastcalc changed. If you are concerned, average it out and make a little bigger starter.
