during graphical installation I chose to encrypt my hard drive and to use the colemak keyboard layout. After the system rebooted, typing the
passphrase in colemak didn't work and I got dropped into rescue
mode. The rescue mode is in qwerty, not colemak.

Could you check whether your system configuration's bootloader-configuration actually contains a keyboard-layout field?

      (bootloader (bootloader-configuration
                    (bootloader grub-efi-bootloader)
                    (target "/boot/efi")
      -->           (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout)))

The last time I tried adding this myself (granted: that was a year ago) it broke my GRUB, so today I still type my passphrase once in Qwerty and once in Dvorak. Much secure!

Kind regards,
