O.k.. Brewery loaded for an early start tommrorrow.
15# US 2-row
1# Carahells (my new favorite!)
8.5# instant rice

Plan... Low 140's for 30 minutes, then 155 for 60 more.... Thinking of throwing in some amylase to ensure I can convert all that rice. 5 gallons with nottingham and 5 with saflale lager 004?. Ferment around 55 degrees. This should work around christmas to convert the masses although at around 8 1/2% it might be dangerous.

No hops? Why don't you just add an ounce of vodka to a 12 ounce can of budweiser instead? :)

You are going to throw some hops in there aren't you Jim?
An ounce of N.Brewer for bittering maybe? Cheers, Tim

2 ounces of Columbus? Yowza! I'd double-check your recipe, as those are fairly high alpha-acid hops you're using. If you're looking to convert 'em, don't blast 'em with hop bitterness!

Safale lager 004? If you mean Safale S-04, it won't go down to 55 degrees, it'll just drop out. Lowest I'd go is 62F.

I don't know, that just sounds nasty. That's going to be one dry, thin, overhopped beer. At least make this a lager. I think the fruitiness of an ale is going to be wierd in such a thin beer. There won't be anything for all that alcohol to balance with either.

But that's just MHO. Brew on!

I just looked it's actually s-23. The lager yeast. I was a little foggy last night. I think I'll cut the hops in half too after the feedback. I have enough hoppy beers on hand.

Thanks all... The burners are going!

Jim - along these same lines...a Rye Lager?????????? Damn' those style nazi's...my last kitchen sink brew...been lagering for a month, or so. Samples taste great; not at all cloying....the rye and hop additions seemed to have worked well. Think a Sam Adams Lager on steroids.

Wish I would have gotten a picture of the primary. :>) The 820 yeast cakes were off violently within an hour.

Crystal malt can be your friend.
