Bitterness (IBU): 26.9 (Average)

43.31% American 6-Row
27.56% Rauchmalt
19.69% Rye Malt
3.94% Caramel Rye
3.54% Caramunich III
1.97% Chocolate, Pale

0.6 g/L Green Bullet (13% Alpha) @ 75 Minutes (First Wort)

Others say rye goes good as sub for wheat in DSGA recipe, pale ales, ipas etc so i imagine anything like that would be good.

I'm not a big fan. There's rye, then there's caramel rye.

All I get from caramel rye is this aweful chemical tartness. Tastes like kit twang.

YMMV and probably will.

It can go really well in an IPA, use in place of a crystal addition for a nice spicyness.

cheers

I use it in my Rye ESB. I've tried it with and without the caramel rye and I much prefer the version with. Added an additional level of flavour and maltiness
A touch over 5% was what I had, out of 20% or so rye total.
If you do go for the recipe read the notes as the grains in the recipe database didn't match what I used.
