Rye IPA the revenge

Emilie bought me a HUGE beer mug. That's my iPhone case next to the glass

Since this was accidently messed up when Scott and I brewed it, I thought it was only fitting that once a fermenter opened up (I kegged the 50 gallons in my garage), I give it another go.

11 lbs GW 2row
3 lbs GW Rye
2 lbs GW Munich 10L
2 lbs GW Crystal 15L

1 lbs Briess Red Wheat
0.5 lbs Grain Millers Flaked Wheat

1.5 oz Chinook @ 60
1.5 oz Chinook @ 40
1.5 oz Simcoe @ 20
1.5 oz Simcoe @ 5
1.5 oz Simcoe Dry Hopped.

Wyeast 1056

4.2 gallons strike @ 162
Collected 2 gallons
4.3 gallons sparge @170
Collected 2 gallons on the first half and 2 gallons on the double batch

7-28-2011--Small stuck mash. I redid my mash strainer and am going to rig something up to not have this happen again. OG was just under 1.090.
8-3-2011--Gravity at 1.011 and tasting great. I need to get to drinking to empty a keg. What a wonderful predicament.
