Default Rocky Top Roggenbier

Recipe Type: All Grain

Yeast Starter: 120 Billion
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.056
Final Gravity: 1.016
IBU: 14.8
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 16.6
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3
Tasting Notes: Excellent!

Named because of it's dense rocky head. I had to pour it like it was nitroglycerin because the foam stayed ALL of the way to the bottom of the glass.
Taste is excellent! I did screw up a little by making too large of a yeast starter, and ended up with no fruit flavor, but I will adjust next time. Caramel malt gives a nice flavor and the Black prinz gives the added color without bitter malt qualities.

6 lbs 8.0 oz Rye Malt (Weyermann) (3.6 SRM) @ 60.8 %

Make a small starter...say around 120 Billion count and ferment at around 75* to give fruit flavors.
