    This has been bottled for 14 days and testers have been very good.Nice and sharp with a nice not overpowering hop hit.
    Not a massive rye percentage by any means as this was a step up from a 5% added rye mix in a previous brew.
    This one is 16.6% added rye.
    6 litres, partial mash,1.048 OG, 1.010 FG,43.80 IBU, 10.92 SRM abv 5% approx
    454 grams liquid extract H and B at start boil
    50 grams light munich
    15 grams Choc malt
    85 grams Wheat malt
    200 grams Pale malt
    200 grams Lager malt
    200 grams Malted Rye
    6 grams Challenger pellets 60 min
    1/4 protofloc tablet 15 mins
    5 grams Citra "" 15 min
    5 grams Citra and Amarillo f/ out
    6 grams amarillo and 8 grams citra dry hop 5 days.
    1/2 pack US -Pale CML
    5 litre mash at 67c 60 mins
    Dunk sparge 2.75 litres 10 mins at 72c
    approx 600 ml water added to FV to reach 6 litres
    Note,although i used up some lager and pale malt, pale alone would be fine and indeed lager if that was all that was available

    This sounds great. I see you use Challenger as your buttering hop in a few recipes, do you find it quite neutral, is that why you choose it?

    Just have a liking for it,guess it is a little neutral, not expensive to use for bittering either.It seems to go well with pretty well most styles. Going to do an all challenger brew soon and will be looking for a little fruityness from the late additions.:thumb:

    Sounds good. Yeh it's my go to for English styles, I'm not all that keen on Fuggles and for some things EKG is a bit floral.

    Just pushed this through b/f recipie builder as a 12 litre batch.Will do it and p/b 10 litres and rest to bottles.
    Doubt if it will be exactly the same however but if it's near it i will be happy.
    Just had a few with another homebrewer who has given it the thumbs up:)
