For those who don't already have a system for fruiting the wort in the secondary carboy, a good trick is to tie a sanitized grain bag around top of carboy and dump your berries into the bag and just rack right over suspended berry filled bag (works like a charm). This works great for me, zero seeds in my keg lines. I also use a bazooka tube while racking into the keg and that helps catch any stray particles.

yeah if you want to oxidize your beer...seems like a bad idea to me

Works like a charm...if you keg. You bleed off the oxy anyways, never had an issue with oxidation on any keg and am a firm believer it is pretty rare in young beer unless your beer is exposed to the environment for long periods of time but hey the beauty of home brewing is...to each his own his own! 12 years of home brewing tells me it works!

My fourth batch of this...best fruit beer recipe.

I used half the Roasted Barley to lighten it up...flavor is still the same.

I still say it's a bad idea...why take this shortcut when better methods exist? If I wanted a half-ass beer I'd go to the grocery store...

Have you done a side by side comparison by splitting a batch of wort, half of which is oxidized via your method, half of which is racked onto berries? If you haven't, how can you say that your method doesn't cause detriment to the beer?

I believe that like myself, you don't understand the chemistry at play well enough to comment on whether or not it is a good idea. Literature indicates that what you are doing is ill-advised.


Furthermore, your idea is especially bad for those who would be bottling their beer.



Like you said, each to his own. Personally I strive for excellence.

I will say that adding your raspberries to the secondary by wrapping the grain bag around the carboy neck and stuffing the berries inside with a funnel works great.

But, be sure to rack the beer normally into the secondary with little oxygen exposure, not on top of the raspberries. Mine still has a maturing raspberry flavor and I only have 2 bottles left. Don't want this batch to be gone.

This recipe highlights the raspberries. Frozen works fine also. Definitely will make again.
