Hello everyone I was going to start a high gravity fruit infused ale. Something similar to soft parade i am just curious to know some good grains and Malts to use wit this an extract brew. I'm not set up for all grain yet.

Crystal grains would probably be a good addition depending on how sweet you want it. Do you want the fruit to be the dominant flavor?

I would go with a basic wheat beer if you want fruit as a major flavor. Basically a Hefe with fruit added and no grains.
