Default Looking for a good Cranberry Ale recipe

Looking for a good (or great) extract or partial mash cranberry ale recipe. The last recipe I tried was from "The Homebrewer's Recipe Guide" and was an ABSOLUTE DISASTER. I am having ALL the inlaws over for Thanksgiving this year and would like to show off my best...

Thanks!

Make a wheat beer with neutral yeast and add cranberry extract. Done and done.

Like this:

3lbs. wheat DME
3 lbs light DME
1 oz hallertau @ 60

US-05

this at bottling

When you split the DME up like that, are talking about the wheat DME that is 55/45 wheat/barley?

No, if thats the case use 6lbs of the wheat stuff. It's been a while since I brewed with DME.......that rings a bell, though.

Rather than use an essence or flavoring, I think I'd like to rack the beer on top of my mom's Cranberry relish recipe--12oz. bag of cranberries, 1 apple, 1 orange (with peel) and 3/4 cup-to-1 cup of sugar. Just decided how much of the relish to make--double or triple batch?

Thoughts anyone?!
