    I’ve never done a roggenbier, but have had a few homebrewed versions from friends and they are definitely a tasty beer. I also have issues with the boil overs, I have to watch the burner like a hawk once things get rolling, especially after you add hops and nucleation takes place. I notice you have a lid on your pot…not sure if you’re completely covering during the boil, but I’ve read that can cause issues with DMS.

      I only had the cover on halfway (like the picture) to reduce the risk of something blowing in. I had 2 boil overs… piss me off. the second was 30 sec after adding the hops I probably lost a good bit of hops. But life happens…. move on hope for the best.

    Losing hops like that is the worst, happened to me many times.

    I’m always afraid to brew outside…that a storm will come up or a bird fly into the brew. All unreasonable fears. That wort already looks delicious!

    Beer turned out great! not sure what to expect having never had this style of beer. But aside from a moderate banana flavor ( a bit on the high side from the BJCP) it fits the style wonderfully.

    Not mention that at the party over teh weekend with four beers on tap, my corney is about 2/3’s gone. I drank a lot of it but not that much 🙂
