Rye Pilsner w/ Aurora hops, 3.6%. It should turn around pretty quick in time for the hot weather of July and August.

Yeah! Sounds good. Bet you could easily have that one kegged and gassed in under 2 wks.

That's the plan. I'm pretty excited to try this one. I've never even heard of a Rye pilsner before, and this is my first attempt at using large amounts (45%) rye in something. As a note, I didn't have any lautering problems. I added 1/4lb rice hulls to it and everything went smooth as ever.

I did apparently decide to skim off all the protein crap in the foam at the beginning of the boil because I was distracted out in the yard ( boil over ). I haven't had that problem in a long time, now I get the joy of cleaning it up. It is like I jumped in the way back machine to my first couple batches.

Just kegged that RoggenLager bitch up. The warm/flat sample seems like it has definite promise. I'll give it a week in the cold before I hit it with some gelatin, although it is pretty clear right now. The mouthfeel is fairly substantial for a 3.5% beer, which I assume is due to the rye malt.

Yeah, rye malt really kicks up the mouthfeel and body of drier/thinner beers. Wait till you carb it up and watch the head form on that sucka! It will be like its on nitro.

Stiff long lasting head indeed. The first pour was largely foam to pull the junk out that settled to the bottom and so I waited for the 4" of foam to settle before trying it. Waiting, and waiting, and waiting...

It feels a lot bigger in my mouth than I thought it would.
