    Long story short, the home brew shop combined my rye and wheat. I wasn't originally planning on using them in the same beer, but now I think I'll go ahead and give it a shot. I've seen a few recipes for a dunkelweizen, and I've got everything else I need for it. Any other ideas? I should note it's 1 lb of each, and I do 2-2.5 gal BIAB batches.

    Saison, if you're into that sort of thing.

    Did you ask them to? Did you fail to ask them not to, if it's some sort of default at your LHBS? If the answers are no, they should fix this.

    That's part of the long story. I don't have a LHBS close to me, so my brother picked it up for me. The shop is about 2 hours from my house, but only 5 minutes from his apartment. I've never been to this shop, and it was his first time.

    I was planning on making a hefe with ginger and lime next, and a rye IPA shortly thereafter. I may just throw it all into my planned ginger lime hefe and see what happens.

    If you're throwing them together, the rye IPA would be the better beer IMO

    A pound of rye malt and pound of wheat malt would not be out of the question in a "rye IPA"
