Default wheat/raspberry wheat racked to secondary

well i racked my wheat today.. did 1/2 and 1/2 (which ended up a little more due to i fermented about 6 gallons i think) .. 1/2 i racked with 1 can Oregon Raspberry Puree and 1/2 i just racked as wheat.. im going to add cherry extract to that one about 3 days before bottling..

i gotta say watching that stuff ferment was awesome! but it had definately finished by today so secondary it went.. im looking forward to watching the raspberry and hoping that i get a good beer.

this is a bit of an experiment for me.. just trying my best i suppose to get that good "girl" beer. LOL

so heres the pics of the wonderful wheats!



as usual any and all advice or suggestions are greatly welcome!

Good luck with the raspberry puree and keep everybody posted! The last time I tried to use any actual fruit (not extract flavoring) was in a cranberry ale with 6 lbs. of crushed crans steeped in corn sugar. It ended up being 5+ gallons of sludge!

(Not to scare you, just give it sufficient time to clear!)

BREW ON

Oregon Raspberry Puree is a good product. How big a can do you have?

Cranberries are tough critters, I would have run them through a blender or a meat grinder and maybe cooked them a bit. I put fruit in extra large grain bags, that way you can hang them over the fermentor and let them drip if necessary.
