Roggenweizenhaferflocken Porter


This is just a relatively small (3-gallon) test batch to get me back into the brewing mood, while I'm waiting for the Saaz hops to arrive for the 10-gallon batch of Rye Blonde Ale II I'll be brewing a week later. I kinda made this up from scratch — never even heard of anything even vaguely like it before. I wasn't sure whether to call it a porter or a stout, so I just flipped a coin.

I'm basically expecting this to either be disgusting or amazing. Either way, I'm excited to try something so bizarre.

As planned, I brewed the Roggenweizenhaferflocken Porter today. Unfortunately, I miscalculated my boil off rate, so I had more than half a gallon too much wort. . . . . [view full post]
Looks like my 12-month-old jars of yeast slurry aren't viable enough to use this weekend, so I'm switching the yeast to a vial I picked up the other day as a ba. . . . . [view full post]
