This may be anathema to many, but I’d suggest a light touch of crystal 40-60L. This is coming from one who rarely uses much crystal and when I do it is usually 10L or lower. With rye, the crystal adds a nice counterpoint to my palate. With the recipe in the article, maybe add a half pound of crystal 60?
Just my 2 cents...Cheers!
Confirms what I was thinking of doing, often add small amounts of crystal to most batches.
Don't like carapils (dextrin), and use a little wheat and/or crystal instead.
Now I'm going to add it to this one as well, probably 40.
Tentative plan for a 4 gallon batch is: 5 lb 2-Row, 2lb Rye, 1 lb Crystal 40.
All recipes are kept in 1 lb increments. Keeping Rye low to see if I like it,
and what it does for the beer.
