This is delicious! After the first sip you get the bitter cranberry followed by a sweet apple finish. Oh man, amazing

That sounds awesome, and I want to make some. Three questions:

1) For us lazy people who use extracts, what would you recommend? Could I get a near facsimile with, say, 4 lbs. wheat DME, a pound and a half of Munton's extra light, and a pound of pilsen...?

2) How did you get all those lovely fruit flavors in there using such minute amounts of fruit? I've always heard it said you need gobs and gobs of fruit -- like up to ten pounds for a five-gallon batch -- to get the subtle tastes of something like apple to show up in your ale.

3) How long did you bottle age it before you got these fine results? Inquiring minds want to know!

Sorry for the delayed reply

This sounds good.

2) How did you get all those lovely fruit flavors in there using such minute amounts of fruit? I've always heard it said you need gobs and gobs of fruit -- like up to ten pounds for a five-gallon batch -- to get the subtle tastes of something like apple to show up in your ale.

The key is pectic enzyme. Follow the directions on the bottle and you're golden. I tossed my fruit into a bag, pasteurized, added the pectic enzyme, and then threw them into the secondary.

3) How long did you bottle age it before you got these fine results? Inquiring minds want to know!

I let the bottles age 3 months. I opened one after a month to make sure my carbonation was working. However as time went along the flavors got better. 3 months tasted the best. I still have some and it rocks my taste buds.
