I made this as my 2nd batch on the system. I did not understand my efficiency was so high that it came out much stronger then it should have been (seems like an odd issue?). Either way it still came out great. Next time I can reduce the grain bill to get more on target.

It was to much grain. This is a late picture I have already done batches and 3 and 4 hitting the numbers I aimed for. I went from calculating my mash efficiency from 85% to 95% and now I tend to hit my number each time.

I always look forward to the release of this beer from SN. Have a 5 gallon system scaled down but just like Kal"s. Have brewed about 20 batches on my system and have it dialed in. Do not get 95% like Kal but do get 85% consistently. Did this recipe following Kal"s procedures and water profile and must say that this beer came out quite close to the real deal. Thanks for the recipe and the only other thing I want to say is this. Kal, if you happen to read this my only complaint is this. You need to post more recipes!

The biggest issue is that I don't just want to post "anything"... I've only posted about 1/3 of the stuff I've made because I have slight tweaks or changes I wanted to try out with some of them to try and get them as good as I can before I list them here.
The other thing is that I want to give some information or a reason behind each of the recipes and that takes work. The internet's full of so many of what I'd call mediocre recipes since anyone can post anything. Most do not contain any information about what makes it special, why they like it, how good it is, and so forth. I don't want to fall into that pit. There are websites where thousands of people each post dozens of recipes with little to no information about them. Some are not even anywhere near the style the say they are. I don't understand the value of that at all. How's someone supposed to pick out the "good" ones? If you know how to do that, you know how to create the recipe yourself already.
<Sorry - that was a bit of a rant, wasn't it? I do intend on posting more recipes as I make them and tweak them!>

Kegging this today. I finished a few points high, so I need to consider calibrating my temp probes. Regardless, the massive hop flavor overshadows a couple gravity points. I'm drinking a pint now(flat) and it is magical...good stuff.

Enjoy! Let us know how you like it after it's carb'ed up and chilled.
Actually since I cold crashed it prior to kegging, it was already chilled. It's carbonated already
I drank a couple of glasses last night and it was delicious. Very resiny and assertive bittering and the aroma and hop flavor is very close to the original on-tap version. Truly a satisfying beer. I think that I may mash 1 degree higher next time as a matter of personal preference.

Two words.... "Holy effing shiite"... (okay three words)... This is the new favorite of everything I've brewed so far... IPA fans absolutely love this beer... so much flavor... absolutely delicious. I've had the Ruthless Rye before but don't remember it being anywhere NEAR this good. This will be one of those that I try and keep on tap. Thanks for sharing the recipe! _________________ Jerz
