I know there has been much discussion on when to add the raspberries, and I am not quite sure. I am leaning towards after the end of the boil...let sit for 15 min, then dump into primary. Any feedback/experience would be helpful. Also any general feedback would be great..

I would suggest putting them in the secondary. you will lose flavor and aroma by adding it to the primary That is what I do. I have also did 1/2 lb per gallon of beer.

add the respberries in secondary.

check the recipe in my sig. It fermented for a week in primary, then was transfered to secondary on top of the raspberries. in 5 days they were white, and sinking to the bottom.

+1 to that and the Requiem Raspberry recipe. I use 48 oz of fresh raspberries and could still stand more flavor.

Check my Raspberry Ale recipe (and probably others in the database) for a discussion on how to manage the fruit in your beer. Generally, people do not boil fruit.

I dumped mine (blackberries) in the primary after two weeks, then allowed in to sit another two. I think it is ready to bottle this weekend. Your recipe looks at lot like mine, even down to the maltodextrin amount. In addition to the fresh berries, I am adding 2 oz of blackberry extract at bottling for aroma. Hope it works out.

----------------

I did a 5 gal Raspberry Blonde using this method, (with 5oz priming sugar) it had a ton of head and raspberry flavor. Too much raspeberry for me.

I would just use all wheat extract cause it is already like 60/40 with barley.

I will go against the current and say add your fruit to the primary. I make fruit beers often and ALWAYS get much better flavor and aroma by adding it to the primary. The yeast activity physically and chemically breaks down the fruit and extracts more out of it.
