I use 12 ounces of frozen raspberries per gallon of beer if that helps at all. I would describe the flavor intensity as medium.

I pitched this on 8-5.
It took a couple of days to get going I eventually added Montrachet but its only just today below 1.00 SG. I didn't think it would ever finish!

Oops

I started around the first week of August as well and was just below 1.0 over the weekend. I added the potassium and sparkloid on Saturday, and its already clearing up. Ive got a party coming up on 9/7. That would be when I add the sugar to sweeten. Is it going to be okay to serve at that point or is it really necessary to wait another 2 weeks?

I am kinda in the same boat. Party on the 6th.

As soon as it's clear, you can rack and back sweeten. The only reason to wait to package after you back sweeten is to make sure that fermentation does not restart. I think if you wait 3 or 4 days after you back sweeten, you should be fine.

You can drink instantly when you backsweeten. No need for conditioning.

Edit:I also at the time wasn't worrying to much about re fermentation. I just wanted to drink it!

I really want to make Skeeter Pee but I only have a 7 gallon fermenting bucket and a 6 gallon carboy. Can I make a half batch (2.5) gallons in a 6 gallon carboy without worrying about oxidation? To preempt the make-the-5-gallons comments, I don't need that much as I don't drink that much nor do I have friends who drink much either.
Thanks!
