Default Lb fresh raspberries in boil

I have some raspberries. Do you see any problems if i put them in a muslin bag and put in boil. Don't want the flavor so much as the color and sugar. Will bag keep the undesirable bits out of the boil?
Thanks

If you boil fruit i believe your beer will end up cloudy, i usually add fruit to secodary.

i did a cranberry ale about a month ago, crushed them up to break the skins, and release the juices... then put them in at flameout

nice color, and just a hint of the flavor. 10 minutes at flameout will pasturize them plenty.

then i strained it out with everything else when it went into the fermenter.

i was worried about boiling them for an hour and creating jelly in my wort

btw... i'm not sure what the muslim bag will accomplish, but i bet that for berries that cheesecloth might be better, and you can just throw it all away when you get done.
