    Sounds like a good recipe; would like to give it a go.
    Are you using normal CARAFA III or special/de-husked?

    Really like this recipe, brewed mine with Manuka smoked malt and ended up at 9.4% abv. Nice bitterness, and the smoke and spice from the rye to sit well on the palate

    Excellent recipe! Dark, smoky, and spicy.
