Double Brew Day part 2 - Rye PA 2.0 and American Heffer Recipes

Looks like Friday's weather is going to be perfect for a double brew. Starting the day off with Rye Pale Ale 2.0 and following that with a Hoppy American Wheat with the same grain bill as my German Hefeweizen. With my new burner this should go much faster than before as I can get liquid to boil much much faster. Recipes follow and as always any constructive criticism or advice will be considered.

Ferments here. Hey man, i am looking forward to spreading more slovak love with these 2 recipes, but I am interested in a few of the rye changes. What is the flaked rye going to offer? I am also interested as to why the FWH got nixed. I like the Safale 05, I have had great results in hoppier beers. When you did the Hef the first time, did you do the late hop editions or is that the new method?
