With the raspberries and hopped extract, mine is wierd. Funny, it has lost it's pink hue and raspberry flavor. It tastes more like a sweet IPA! It's not bad, but the little tweaks really changed it from what it was supposed to be.

Orrelse,

Yup- My apples didn't really seem to want to downsize. After a pretty good fight with the blender, I gave in and just threw the big chunks in.

I will be bottling this brew friday at the latest. I did get a nice whiff when I racked to my tertiary. Smells so good- really a tart aroma, but pleasant.

I can't wait until you try this stuff. I really want your opinion on it.

Default Another update:

I got some feedback from the editor of BYO (who came up with the Zinger recipe) and it sounds like mine turned out pretty much exactly what it is supposed to be like. I was concerned that it didn't have much "beerness" to it--and that it almost resembled champagne. He reassured me that this was the way it was supposed to turn out.

Like I said before--I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I just wasn't sure how close I got to the target.

I bottled by Cranberry Zinger on Sunday... It's interesting. Seems light and tart. I think the flavor will go well with the recommended high carbonation. The color is great, a deep pink color from what I remember. I'm looking foreward to opening one, or more, of these in about three weeks.

I'm not sure on that actually....I would think 2-2.5 volumes would be sufficient.

The recipe calls for 1.2 cups priming suger and for the beer to be carbonated so that it is "fizzy." I ended up with just over 4 gal. after racking on and off of the cran relish. I calculated .96 cups priming suger for 4 gallons. I don't know how this translates to volumes CO2 but either amount is more then I'm used to using to bottle condition. I went with a middle of the road amount and added .75 cups for 4 gallons.

I'm not sure what to think of this one after bottling tonight. I lost some beer and only can up with about 40 bottles . It smelled like citrus and wine notes, and the taste of the cranberries was very apparent with a sharp after-bite. I am hoping that it just needs its time to mellow out, as most of the beers I taste out of the secondary. great color!
