Just have to say - After drinking this beer for several months, I recently tried it with a splash of bourbon and it tasted amazing! The tartness of the raspberry really went well with the bourbon flavor.

Hey guys, just tried making this for the first time everything worked out, until I siphoned the original into the bottling bucket on top of a little star san and the raspberries, dumped all the original yeast crap outta the first bucket, been in the "secondary" for a few days and no action in the airlock...Basically my question is after you add the raspberries should you get some airlock action sitll?

How long was it in primary? if it was in there a while, the yeast may have went dormant and might take a while to get rebooted

About a week only, will it do that by itself?

how was the airlock activity when you racked it to the secondary? if it was low... again it might just take a while to get back up to speed. I wouldnt worry about it until a few days into it. if its giving you issues... buy a smack pack and pitch some more yeast.

It was pretty slow by the time I was racked it into my secondary, if it kicks back up by itself I'll just leave it be for a little than

yep. not to worry. just if you dont see any activity in a few days... check the seal if you are using a bucket first, and then pitch some more yeast if need be. hope it goes well!

Alright guys, onto my next question I apologize but just wanted to double check if anyone knew how much corn sugar should I use to carb a beer like this? The calculator I used said around 7 oz 201g does that sound about right if anyone else has done it?

Dude, it depends. You have to add different amounts based on the temperature that your bottles are stored at for carbonation, and the amount of beer you are bottling.

If you are bottling 5 gallons then I don't think you should ever have to add more than 5 oz. of corn sugar.
