It doesn't taste infected and it doesn't look infected, but that's something to consider. The pale ale was fermented at a cooler temperature than the saison so maybe I failed to account for the...

I'd just leave it as is. Since you brewed this for your wife, I assume she likes raspberries (and their tartness). Keep it simple.

I've done the fresh raspberry route a couple of times, but I didn't mash them. I just plopped them in whole. Worked beautifully.

The general guideline I've heard/used is 1 lb. of fruit per gallon of beer. For the raspberry saison that I make, I lower it a bit because raspberries have a pretty strong flavor. I use 3 lbs. per 5...

1. Not sure how you could do it differently with the teaballs (outside of buying more). But like Seriousbeef mentioned, you can throw them in loose. Any gunk that does get into the fermenter will...

I believe this is the inaugural festival. I will be going, and I expect it to be essentially the various breweries in booths giving out samples like other festivals.

I'm curious now. How does the amount of water affect the efficiency? Aren't steeping and mashing functionally the same thing?

My White House Honey Ale finished at 1.018. If it's steady you're probably good to go on bottling. There's nothing wrong with letting it sit though. It's your call.

Assuming you're using fresh fruit, I think the general rule of thumb is approximately 1 lb. of fruit per gallon of beer.

Just do the math. The extract yields 35 ppg. Just need to plug in the numbers.

To get a 1.100 OG for five gallons, you need 500 points (100 x 5 gallons)
At 35 points per pound of extract you'd...

Maybe you used too much priming sugar?*

If the yeast are finished fermenting, a slightly higher than expected FG isn't going to result in overcarbonation.

Both of those posts point to overcarbonation being a function of bottling too early (i.e. fermentation wasn't finished). If your beer's specific gravity is stable, you should be fine to bottle and...

It shouldn't. I think you're confusing expected FG with actual FG. Those yeast aren't machines and aren't looking to hit a specific final gravity. They just rock and roll until they've used up all...

When you rack the beer the hydrometer isn't going to drop like a rock to the bottom of the carboy. It will be a gradual decent as the liquid level drops. Furthermore, the trub should provide a soft...
