Just cracked my first bottle of a version of this beer after only 5 days in the bottle (I couldn't wait!) and it is awesome! It is obviously and little under carbed but the taste is exctly what I was hoping for I only used 3lbs of frozen raspberries which I heated to 160 w/ 2 cups of water and added to the beer in the secondary for a week prior to bottling. Great raspberry taste that is not overpowering at all. Thanks for the idea/recipe!!

Hey, I figured I'd give this a go as my vacation beer.

The HBS was running dry so I took some creative liberties and got the following:

3.3 lbs light liquid malt extract
4lbs light dry malt extract
2 vials of wlp002 english ale yeast (ive heard they under attenuate, so i figured double pitch?)
1oz cascade
1oz styrian goldings (5.5%AA, this was as close as I could find)
12.8oz of 40L crystal
3oz of roasted barley

I guess what I'm asking is, am I ok? I've never substituted before on a recipe and I want to make sure this will turn out alright. I assume yes, but looking for a little confirmation on my reasoning.

Sanitizing everything now, have to pick up some water and another muslim bag (thought I had extras, of course not haha).

Oh, and has anyone done this with any other fruit? I ask because I currently have about 38 oz of frozen blueberries in my freezer.


Cheers!
dave

og was a bit high at 1.064, but it was a bit hot here yesterday.
did a full boil, and went with a combo of s-05 and a vial of wlp002.

tastes pretty damn good so far, bubbling away vigorously as we speak.
Cheers!
dave

I'm a bit confused b/c the original recipe says add an additional 40 oz to secondary.

Does this mean that I add 40 oz at flameout and 40 oz in secondary?

Also, when I convert 6.5 lbs light dry extract to pale malt in Beersmith, I get an estimated og @ 75% efficiency of around 1.060 or something. I adjusted to get an Og of 1.054 like the orig recipe says. Has this happened to others?

I actually used 48oz (the ones I bought came in packages of 12oz) and since I purchased DME by the pound I used 7 lbs. It turned out great!

Yeah, but did you add 48 oz at flame out and 48 oz in the secondary for a total of 96 oz?

Have you made this before? The raspberry flavor comes out strong?

Also, the Ibu's he has for the hops are all jacked up. I'm a bit confused about this recipe here.

Yes, I've actually brewed it for the second time this past weekend. I don't know about the IBUs but I just follow the recipe (more or less... I don't get too technical). The first batch turned out great!!!
