I am thinking of adding some rye malt to my IPA recipe. Which brand of rye malt would the collective recommend? Any to definitely avoid?

I always use Briess because that is what my favorite store carries. I've been very happy with it. It gives a nice rye flavor and I have never had the kind of nightmare sparges that others report with rye. At about 20% of the grain bill (about what I would recommend for an APA) I don't even add rice hulls.

I don't think you'll find a huge difference in the maltsters. I use Weyermann or Briess, but would not have reservations of one over the other.

Rye malt in an IPA???? What a crazy idea! ;)

I use Briess almost exclusively. About the only Briess product I use. I tried the Weyermann and it was good, but I didn't feel it had the "snap" that the Briess did.

Denny:
I found your recipe but I follow a general rule of never using someone else's recipe. For example, if I were to make B52, I would use 2 row and do a single infusion mash ;-)

Steve, maybe you don't need it, but I've learned a lot by following other people's recipes before I strike out on my own for one.
