Default Raspberry wheat. when to add

My question is about when to add and how much to add my raspberry purée? And if and how to sanitize, it is a 3 lb can of purée. Thanks for the help!

I'm sorry to say I don't know but I'm intrigued so I'm subscribing to the thread to see the answer.

I'm thinking of making a strawberry wheat and if I can just use puree instead of strawberries that'd be cool.

Just out of curiousity, did you ever think about racking to a secondary with rasberries soaked in vodka?

The raspberries are sanitized in the can already when they are packaged. A good rule of thumb is 1-2# per gallon depending on how intense you want the flavor. Add them in secondary.

Have you ever used puree? I'm hijacking the thread a bit but I'm wondering if when racking to the bottling bucket if a filter is used to keep some of the fruit's seeds out.

The other thing would be does puree or whole fruit impart more of a flavor? Hopefully some of these questions would be flexfit's follow up questions.

So should I put the whole 3 lb can in a 5 gallon batch? My girl loves the flavor or the raspberry shocktop. Which is quite bold.

Just brewed a 3 gallon batch and used the whole can of the Oregon Puree. My wife loves it. Its got a lot of raspberry flavor. I think a whole can in 5 gal would still provide a very noticeable raspberry flavor.

I didnt bother sanitizing it. I sanitized a paint strainer bag, put it in the bucket after 2 weeks of fermenting and dumped the whole can in. Let it sit for a week and pulled the bag out with all the raspberry junk in it.

The beer is really good. Really red in color too LOL.

I will tell you that it is not as sweet as the shock top. Its like a beer with real raspberry flavoring. I thought about adding some simple syrup to it as I kegged but decided not to. Probably a good choice as it is really good as is.

Default Raspberry Hefe

I added a full large can of puree to the fermenter after about a week and left it in for another week then racked to a bottling bucket. I feel the result is too much raspberry flavoring and too sweet but people like it.

Sounds great! I'm really excited to do it tomorrow! How long should I leave it on the primary and then secondary? I was thinking a week to 10 in the primary and 2 in the second. What r your thoughts?

IMO, no need to secondary. Wait for most of the active fermentation in primary to subside 5-7 days, then add right into primary. 2 weeks, it'll be great. Drinking apricot blonde done in this manner, excellent.
