I will be performing a modified split wort brew with this beer and the South Pacific IPA. I am adding 3.3lb of liquid rye malt extract, which I've never used before, to whatever runoff I can collect after gathering wort for the IPA. I have DME and Candi sugar as well, if needed, for points. Bittering will be done with a hop shot provides 10 IBUs per mL per 60 minutes, so 3mL will give me 30 IBUs.
Swapped out chocolate malt for Crystal 15 and slightly more Victory malt. Rust Bucket mk. 1 was closer in color to a brown ale. Also reduced liquid volume, and altered hop profile to suit end goal of creating a floral/spicy Amber as a base for a pumpkin ale.
