Hey, this sounds tasty, thank you for sharing this recipe. I am thinking of trying a half batch of this using a BIAB technique. Would it be as straightforward as halving the ingredients listed?

Halving the recipe sounds logical to me too. I was thinking of redoing this recipe myself. I'm so glad it is bringing such joy to others! Happy brewing!

I just brewed this, AG BIAB. Sitting in my fermenter right now. Smells fantastic, strong raspberry smell.

Grain:
2 lbs Castle Belgian pale ale malt
1 lb light crystal malt
1 lb special B
1 lb Cara-Vienna malt
1 lb Belgian aromatic malt (yes, a whole pound)
8 oz malted oats

Other:
1.5 lbs raspberries (smashed)
2x vanilla beans
0.5 oz Irish moss
8 oz dark Belgian candi sugar
1 cup honey

Hop Schedule:
0.25 oz Golding (60 min)
0.25 oz German Hersbrucker (60 min)
0.25 oz Fuggles (60 min)
0.25 oz Fuggles (15 min)
0.10 oz Cascade (15 min)

Mashed grains at 153 degrees for 50 minutes. Boil for 60 minutes. At 15 minutes before the end of the boil, add raspberries, brown sugar, honey, vanilla beans, and Irish moss. Strain solids out of the wort into the primary.

I got visible fermentation in two hours after pitching. Really violent, quick fermentation.

I will definitely try this one again. I will try for higher alcohol content. The head was like snow, and the flavors were excellent!


Sounds great. Might try for my first biab

Was this based on a five gallon batch. And Did you make the wort with the full five gallons of water or did you use less water and top off the carboy? Thanks

I believe the original is for 3 gallons and the previous is for 5.

Default Another attempt in my near future...


When I first did this (based on the original recipe) I used raspberry extract at kegging time. Oh boy was that a mistake.....WAY too much raspberry taste!!! Next attempt will be with real raspberries either at the end of the boil or in secondary. Has anyone else tried variations on this recipe?

why all the different bittering hops in this? can you still taste the raspberries with this even though all those hops espectially the late additions? and also why all the specialty grains? It seems as though some are there for the same reasons?? Any ideas? Thanks
