Rye Porter

Unread post by Mraubreister »

Just wanted to share this killer Rye Porter Recipe I made.
The Rye gives it a real liquorice kick and the classic rye mouthfeel somehow gives it a nitro feel when fully carbed.
Used Munich because.....I had some lying around and it's biscuity and thought I'd get a sort of gingerbread thing going with the rye (I didn't!)

It is a really tasty Porter.

15% Rye malt [4.7 SRM] 1.8 lbs
20.8% Munich 1 2.5lbs
8.3%. Chocolate malt [350 SRM] 1 lbs

The Fermentation

Ferment Nottingham at 63F with rise to 66F once gravity dropped 80% to estimated FG.

I like the sound of using Rye in a Porter (and Ordinary ales), I'll be using this in my next Porter in a few weeks, thanks for posting the recipe. :drink:
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

You're welcome!

Conventional wisdom states that no more than 20% rye be used due to a) flavour impacts, b) mouthfeel impacts and c) stuck mashes.

15% was plenty here to get a nice spicy kick.

Good luck with the brew!

Interesting recipe.
I wonder roasted rye or normal?
Roasted (black) rye from TF in my recipe for Black Rye IPA is one of my favorites.

cheers,
Peter

Hi Peter.

Was just a normal, unroasted Rye.
Drinking it right now and really tremendous.
Benefits from a nice 15-16 psi of carbonation as the rye slickness can give the impression of under carbonation.

I'm considering using Rye to make a DunkelWeizen to be brewed in a couple of weeks, anyone done this? There are a few recipes out there, thinking my usual Wheat beer brewed with Hefe yeast and 5-10% Rye to make it DunkelRyezen.

Tis true tis true. I had planned to use Belma but, as it's so new, my home brew store didn't stock it.

Had heard that Belma had a melon character and as I wanted this to be mainly about the malts, decided to go with Huell as a bittering and see what we got.
I'm all about the experimentation!

If any one uses Belma, or more aroma hops, do let me know what you think!

Cheers :beer:

Not sure Mashy, Rye tends, in my experience, to benefit from an extra psi or two, to cut through the Rye Slickness.

If you added more priming sugar you might get there but also might get delicious little grenades ;)

That was spot on my thinking.
