I did a Red Rye recently, came out nice and hoppy.

For a 20L batch.

ABV - 6%
IBU - 65
OG - 1.055

Pale Malt - 75%
Caramalt - 5%
Crystal T50 - 3%
Rye (Flaked) - 10%
Dextrose - 5%
Carafa III Special - 2%

Chinook - 10g First Wort
Chinook - 20g 30 Minutes
Chinook - 30g 15 Minutes
Chinook - 40g Flame Out

Ferment with an American ale yeast.

Dry hopped with 100g Chinook

The Carafa III was added at sparge to change the colour so could just be dropped for a paler ale.

200g crystal
200g caramalt
1kg rye
3g zeus and 12g warrior at 60 min
10g each amarillo, mosaic and centennial at 15 min. 20g each at 5 min then 20g each at flame out (80C for 30 mins).
Dry hop: 30g simcoe, 100g amarillo and 100g galaxy
Is there much difference between caramalt and crystal Malt?
Looks like a nice balanced recipe. I read that rye adds a dryness and spice that requires a little extra crystal or similar to balance it out.

No, I don't think there is. I was just using up what I had to hand, and one bag said crystal and the other said caramalt. It really needed them to balance the rye and if anything I'd put more in if I were to do the recipe again. Similarly, the warrior and zeus were just there as bittering additions because that is what I had in the freezer, and I'm sure they can be subbed with any other high %AA hop.

I'd say Caramalt (it is really light crystal malt with a different name) adds sweetness and light caramel, where as crystal adds more noticeable caramel and toffee flavours that build the the darker it gets.
