I did a little brewing this weekend! The house smelt sooo good for 2 days. The FG on my Raspberry Wheat was 1.055. I ended up adding the puree to the primary. I am also contemplating on racking it to a secondary with some fresh raspberries. I'm not sure on the cost of raspberries right now, but that will play in my decision. Either way I'm excited to to get it bottled.

frozen fruit is economical, and you likely aren't going to taste a difference in the beer. Adding fruit after primary fermentation has completed will give you a fresher taste whether it is fresh, frozen or pureed. (adding fruit to the primary gives a more muted flavor, and can make it taste slightly rotten)

Here is my UFO raspberry hefeweizen clone recipe:

And how I prepare my fruit:

I decided to go by the recipes directions. This was my second batch and I was hesitant to change the directions.

I ended up calling the hbs that I bought the kit from and they told me to add it to the primary. We shall see how it turns out!

The Rasperry Requiem brown ale is another good thread to check out on various methods of brewing with fruit.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f75/requ...spberry-56285/

I just brewed this and added 3 lbs of frozen raspberries to a grain bag when I put it in the carboy in secondary. I basically used a cut open milk jug for the funnel to add the raspberries to the grain bag inside the carboy.



Using the grain bag left no haze in the beer, but there is some sediment. I would consider fermenting primary in a plastic bucket then adding the raspberries and moving to secondary afterwards or cold crashing to reduce the sediment next time.

This beer came out awesome and the raspberry flavor is increasing as it sits around. Trying to hold off on plowing thru this since it would be effective with ladies. Now I need to find one of those, but that's another issue.

So I couldn't resist and I opened one of my raspberry Wheats. It was still a little tart, but I think that will fad with a little more time.I will be moving the RB Wheat to the fridge tomorrow. I think my next fruit brew will be a Peach berry Hefeweisen for the wifey.

Not a very good picture, but it has a nice dark Amber color. It has nice head that doesnt dissapear. Constant layer of foam.
