brewed this on 7/19/13, racked onto raspberries on 7/31, and bottled on 8/5/13...what a winner! like liquid raspberry. i upped the malt a bit to get to 1.060 and added a touch munich because the frozen raspberries listed sucrose, didnt want it to dry out too much. base beer ended at 1.015 so will call it about 6.5-7% abv after secondary fermentation with raspberries. just thawed raspberries from freezer and dumped them in before racking, no sanitation issues. this is the best fruit beer i've ever had- not cough-syrupy like those flavored extracts and not thin and bitter like most others. also has a lovely red/mahongany color. highly recommend this and will be rebrewing it quite a bit, thanks for the recipe!
