Rye pale ale
« on: April 23, 2013, 07:53:11 PM »
Hello! can anybody help me on making a rye pale ale recipe. i was thinking on this malt bill:

85 % 2 row base malt
10 % rye malt
5% caramel 40

Using US 05 on low 60's and just wondering on the type of hops that could use...I have 2 lbs of citra...is that hop good for the rye flavor? any good combo using citra? any other combos that could be good for that recipe?

thanks!

I generally like to have at least 15% rye.  Any less that that kinda just hides and isn't real noticeable.

I'm drinking a rye pale right now made with 30% rye malt, 70% 2 row pale.  I used all Amarillo in mine,3 ozs  at 60 minutes, then 1.5 ozs at 20, 10,5 and flameout.  (This is a 10 gallon recipe).  With more than 30% I would consider using some rice hulls, this one took forever to sparge.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

What Denny said...I think you want at least 15% rye in in a "rye APA". I love Citra so I say go for it. Seems like a lot think it is overpowering so say to use in in moderation. I think Citra goes well with Cascade and Centennial

Up the rye.

I used Maris Otter, a few other malts, flaked rye, Fermentis-04 English ale yeast along with some columbus, simcoe and willamette. It came out at 4.7% and it was my favorite beer I have done.
