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 at the end of the boil. Since I had two yeast starters (one for the Wyeast 1272 and one for White Labs 051), I decided to split the wort into a 3-gallon batch (in the 3-gallon Better Bottle) and a 2-liter batch (in a sanitized 2-liter soda bottle), with the WL051 in the 3-gallon batch and the Wyeast 1272 in the 2-liter batch.

Here's a pic of each one, after I churned them up to aerate a bit:


I have to say this is probably the thickest wort I've ever seen. When I was aerating it, the bubbles were congealing in it almost like they would in maple syrup. I assume it's the rye malt mostly contributing to that, but the oatmeal and wheat likely helped.

In other news, I would have overshot my efficiency target by a good bit if I'd actually boiled this down to 3 gallons. As it is now, I nailed my target OG (1.054) for the 3.6 gallons.
