I might get around to a Rye IPA. My LHBS finally got in some Rye Malt.

I use a MixStir to aerate (not oxygenate) my beer...I also use a mix stir and it works great for making mead and wine too.
Under $20 and in my unscientific survey as effective as O2 or an aquarium pump.
Sooooo, I didn't dry hop the porter. I wasn't able make it work but in the end, the porter ended up being an extra stout at 6.8%. Has a nice flavor but is going to need some time to condition. I need to get another vessel to dry hop.You could always try dry hopping in your primary fermenter, maybe after initial fermentation has taken place.

Yes, add them to the mash. Beware of stuck sparges, tho, I recommend using some rice hulls to ameliorate this problem. I use 1 to 1 1/2 lbs of oats in my stouts, and add 1/4 lb of rice hulls. I usually used quick oats, or rolled oats, though flaked is good too. Just depends on whats available to me. They have all come out good.That's exactly what I was thinking and I was staring at the rice hulls - got distracted and forgot to buy them. I have used rye quite a bit and have never had a stuck sparge, so maybe I'll be OK.
