Does anyone know what rye should be classified as in EZY water calc?

Not caramel rye, so its not going in as a crystal. Just normal rye malt.
Thanks

Really? Not questioning your seriousness, but do you have any basis for this?
Cheers

As Tidal said, it will affect the mash pH so minimally, it won't really matter what you put it in as (it's not a roast or a crystal, and if you fiddle around with the other options, you'll see they have very little difference between them).

treat rye malt like wheat malt in these calculators. Based on my experience it has a similar distilled water pH to wheat, which is around 6. If rye is only a small portion of the grist it will matter little, though.
