Also, is there a need to keep the raspberries UNDER the beer? I have read that if there are floating and a part of them are peaking above the beer then they can develop mold.

Again, I am brewing this this weekend want all to go smooth.

Are the hop amounts for a full volume boil? Just want to make sure.

Sounds awesome, going to try it soon.

looks like a great recipe? My first brew, a northern brewer raspberry wheat, is in primary right now. It came with raspberry extract. I plan on putting raspberry extract in to 2.5 gallons, and using fresh berries with the other 2.5 gallons. Is it ok to rack 2.5 gallons to a 5 gallon fermenter? Or is this too much air space and could cause oxidation? If thats a risk, ill just put all 5 gallons on real berries.

When the berries are put in the secondary fermenter, do you suggest racking to a 5 gallon carboy or the 6.5 gallon? I'm a little concerned about blow off.

I went with a 5 gallon. If your recipe was for 5 gallons, then when you rack off the trub you will have a little under 5 gallons. Even with the raspberries in there I had no trouble. And you wont (at least I didnt) get a blow off. When the yeast was working on the raspberries, it wasnt very violent... then just kinda changed color

PS: I also wanted to have as little head space (oxygen) as possible so I used a 5 gal

Thanks for the reply! Seems to be doing exactly what you said, a little activity, but not too aggressive. This was taken today, racked to secondary last Saturday.

Looks good. After a few days, once the headspace was full with CO2 (or at least when I thought it was!) I gave it a swirl softly to get the upper raspberries into the fun below!

I know this thread is fairly old, but I am hoping that someone will see and respond to my questions, nevertheless.

I have had this beer in my primary for ~1 week, and I just racked the beer into secondary with the raspberries. I have two questions regarding how to proceed from here. This is my 4th brew, so I am a little anxious about screwing something up.

1. I would prefer to bottle in a couple weeks (once I make it through exams). Is that going to result in an overpowering raspberry flavor?

2. I am thinking about splitting my bottling process into two parts. Half I will bottle as is; the other half, I would like to back sweeten with lactose (since I know that some people may not enjoy a tart raspberry beer as much as I do). Does anyone have recommendations on how much lactose to use and whether this is a good idea?

Thanks for the help. I'm really excited about the beer, and I've found everyone's comments on this thread really helpful.
