I'll have a black butte porter clone ready to bottle in a week or so that I will use raisins in if no one has done this by then. It can't be that hard. I wonder what the minimum amount of beers would be necessary to make some predictions. It would be good to see 2 beers each with 2, 3, and 4 raisins, and 1 beer with 5 raisins. Open 1 beer each at 10 days to check the carbonation and at several months open the rest including the one 5 raisin beer that hopefully hasn't exploded by then. This long term test would check for contamination problems.
Take some of each beer and run on a stir plate to knock the C02 out of them and check their gravity. A beer like a porter will have plenty of residual sugar to compare the final gravities amongst the beers. Use one unprimed capped beer and two sugar primed beers as controls.
Anything else?

I have a beer I bottled last week with raisins. About 2 gallons bottle conditioned with raisins and 3 gallons primed with corn sugar. We used 3 raisins in each bottle. We also primed the other 3 gallons at 2.2 vols (I think). I haven't opened any of them yet. I will check back when I have some notes.

awesome, i cant wait to hear back!

on a side note, i was suprised by how much flavor raisins can contribute. I really like the flavor, but oddly i dont like to eat them by themselves.

I forgot. It's been a weird couple of months for me, esp in terms of brewing. I have an EggNog stout fermenting as we speak 2 more weeks till bottling.

Anyone try this with a Belgian quad or dubbel? How did it turn out? Better or worse than normal priming sugar?

Awesome! Thanks for the update. What is the beer? Did it contribute anything to the flavor?

Always wanted to try this in a Belgian-style! Dacotah, can you comment on the taste?
