One-Ply Rye is based on an American IPA I’ve been brewing for a few years, but it’s a great one to brew now because the ingredients are so easily swapped to accommodate whatever you have on hand. No rye malt? Use more barley malt or sub in some wheat or oats. Caramel rye malt is readily replaced with any caramel malt in the 30–40°L range. And the world is your oyster when it comes to hops. When I first started brewing this, Amarillo hops were somewhat hard to come by, but they’re easy to get these days. I like the simplicity of dry yeast in a beer like this, but by all means, use what you’ve got.
