I'm brewed a raspberry wheat last weekend. I essentially brewed a German Wheat ale, let it primary, and am now ready to add the raspberry into a secondary. What should I use for the raspberries however? And how much? I suspect that fresh raspberries could get costly, but I am brewing this beer to give as a wedding favor, so quality is my main factor.
The OG for this beer was around 1.040 if that helps. The grain bill was 9lbs. Thanks!
I always go with 1lb for every 1gallon of wort...as for the raspberries, if I dont pick them then I prefer going to a big box retailer and buying them frozen (because of the regulations they have on packaging fruit), I let them thaw before I puree them (so that the yeast dont have to work so hard).
But that's me...in the end it's beer, so it can't be too bad!
