Are you thinking of offering a presentation at the 2013 NHC? Time is running out. If you are seriously thinking about it the deadline is December 13th 2012. Check out http://www.ahaconference.org/ for more information.
What is the difference in the taste of using...say 20% of the mash as Rye berries and 20% of the mash as Rye Malt. I know you'll need rice hulls, 6 row malt, and to boil the berries, what's the difference besides that and info on color wouild be nice also. I find surfing the net difficult so finding info on the net is difficult for me.
