Thanks for the feedback. I went with the Irish Ale 004 because I didn't have anything else that might work. I know it probably wasn't the best choice, but it is clean and shouldn't add/detract from the flavor. The 380 would definitely have added flavor, which I was trying to avoid. I'll let you know how it works out.

Also, I used only 3lbs wheat DME, and 1/2oz Saaz at 15 min. OG was 1.069. I'll let you know how it turned out in a few weeks.

Jeff,

You have probably covered this before, but I couldn't find it. What do you do to the raspberries before adding to the fermenter, what's your process for adding fruit? Do you sanitize, boil, bag, etc.?

Thanks.

Ron

I used frozen berries so they're already clean and ready to eat. I just dropped 'em in at the end of fermentation.

I've adapted this to a blackberry wheat recipe. Haven't brewed yet, so I'm looking for input...

5# Pilsner Malt info
5# Wheat Malt info
1.5# Flaked Rye info

1.0 oz Sterling @ 50m

WB-06

Probably single infusion mash at 155 or so. I wouldn't mind a slightly higher finishing gravity.

4 LBS fresh then frozen blackberries, in secondary. Blackberries are less tart and flavorful than raspberries, so I wanted to up the poundage.

Any input? I hope to ferment at or below 68 degrees F, so I may need to employ the wet towel method!

So do the raspberries add anything to the overall ABV of the beer? I brewed this last month or so and just started drinking them. Fantastic!

Not significantly, no. Your priming sugar would add more ABV than the berries would.

I just bottled up 3.5 gallons of your Razzy Wheat tonight. It tasted great going into the bottles so I have high hopes for this one. I left about 1.5 gallons "plain" American Wheat and Rye that is the base of this beer which also tasted awesome. Again, I have high hopes for this one!

I'm looking for an AG Blueberry Wheat to brew for the wifey. I'm thinking of just using a standard wheat recipe, and adding 2-3 lbs of frozen (thawed) blueberries at secondary. Do you think I need to crush the berries, or just drop them in?

Any other suggestions? I like your Rye idea. If someone has a recipe for a 5 gallon batch, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

I made a blueberry wheat once. Pretty, but you'd never know there were blueberries in it and I used 3 lbs fresh in a 3 gallon batch.
