Now that's an excellent idea.

Whelp, my Razzy Wheat is not about four weeks old (I think...) with two weeks in the bottle and I love this beer! The American Wheat and Rye base beer is quite good all by it's self and the Raspberry is also very crisp and refreshing. I think that I am going to get another batch of this in the rotation very soon for some late summer refreshments. THanks for a great recipe!

Just kegged my first batch of this last night. I upped the malts for a 5.25 gallon batch and used a little over 3lbs of frozen raspberries in the primary after about a week. Then let it sit for 10 days. OG - 1.051, FG 1.012.

This ended up a lovely rose color, more pinkish red than I was expecting, it looks awesome. The smell and taste of the raspberries in the hydro sample I tried was a little more pronounced than I'd want in the finished beer, but I figure that will mellow a little in the keg. I'll report back in a few days after it's carbed.

Thanks for the recipe!

I had several of these over the weekend and it's fantastic. It smells exactly like raspberries, but not too much and the taste has a nice tart finish that keeps you coming back for more. This isn't going to last long!

I had made a version of this back in February, keeping the malt/hops the same but substituting frozen Costco mixed berries (raspberry, blueberry, and marionberry). I might have added too many berries / let it ferment too hot because when I tasted it after 3 weeks it was extremely tart - almost undrinkable. I let it sit in the keg for 5 months now and just hooked it up today - wow! Very enjoyable beer, and a beautiful color thanks for the recipe!

I plan on doing this for my next brew. I do 5 gallon BIAB. Would you recommend mashing at 152 deg F for 60 minutes and then mashing out at 170 deg F?

Thanks

You might want to mash a bit warmer to retain some residual sweetness. I can't remember off hand what I mashed at, but the berries will dry out the beer and add some tartness. I say 154-156 but am shooting from the hip.

I'm brewing this up right now. Beautiful day to brew since my team got upset yesterday. Just can't watch basketball right now. Hurts too bad!

I'm experiencing a strange fermentation on this one. Had a krausen the next morning, but today it has dropped and there are some interesting "things" floating on top. Not sure what's going on. I've never used WB-06 so maybe it's just normal.
