Helles/Rye Bock feedback?
« on: February 12, 2014, 11:14:57 AM »
Havent used Rye much but had a Rye bock a few years back and just having a craving for one. I want it at the lower end of the style guidelines. Would love some feedback on the grains and bittering ratio. Havent figured out the water profile yet. The Chocolate rye is there for color mainly and the fact that i have a little sitting around.

Reporting back on this one. Quite tasty i will say. Really digging it. I did make a few changes with mash schedule.

130 F x 15 min, 150F x60 and 168x 15min. Also pulled a single Decoction to get to mash out. 1/3 of the grist.

Rye is nice and not over powering. If anyone decides to brew this let me know what ya think.
