Title: Roggenbier
Post by: mrdrysdale64 on February 03, 2010, 05:03:24 PM
Has any one made a Roggenbier and has a good recipe to share. I took a look at the one posted in the recipe area and it looks good. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I haven't, but I am interested as well and wondering ale or lager?

Would not "Brewing Clasic Styles" have Roggenbier recipe?

I brewed one as per NB's recipe and it is still in primary, but I gotta say rye makes it thicker and there was so much break it was just literally standing like a tree or some kind of a stalagmite in my kettle lol. Never seen anything like that.

Next time I'd reduce the Cara-Munich and maybe some of the Munich and replace it with some more Rye and Pils.  Its a really tasty beer, but I find that the character of the Rye gets hidden behind those other two.

I was thinking about what to brew next
I have a book with a recipe that calls for flaked rye.
I thought I might give it a try.
Any one ever use flaked rye?
I am guessing it would be much more of a subtle
flavor then using malted rye?

I can't find the carbonation level for this style.  The style guide says high carbonation, but should it be as high as the wheat beers?

Here's what I found....  "Effervescence ranges from medium to spritzy like a Hefeweizen." from this web site: http://www.germanbeerinstitute.com/Roggenbier.html

Looks like something between 3.0 & 4.5 volumes of CO2 ??

Jamil has a recipe in his book, but I'm at work and can't recall it. How about his podcast on it at The Brewing Network?

http://thebrewingnetwork.com/shows/The-Jamil-Show/Roggenbier-The-Jamil-Show-02-12-07

I listened to it a couple of weeks ago and added Roggenbier to my ever growing list of beers-to-brew-soon!

OK, so my roggenbier is done.
I kegged it and it's at about 2.5 vol. That thing is thick... like oil. First thing I thought when tasting is was "I can't believe I wasted time and ingredients for that crap." Now, after 3 weeks of lagering, I must say that that's one tasty brew.
The thickness makes it interesting. It actually takes some time for the bubbles to get to the surface, so when I pour, there is no head almost until the glass is full, and then it looks like normal head appearing, but in slow motion, and it just keeps growing and growing, resulting in super thick head. Looks unusual, and the taste also improved. Hefe yeast character with rye taste. Pretty nice. Really thick mouthfeel too.
