i have a raspberry chocolate stout recipe that calls for 4.5 lbs of frozen raspberries and you add them at the end of the boil, and step for 20 minutes. a lot of people use Oregon brand fruit puree' in the secondary, and rack the beer on top of that. most HBS carry that brand. i personnaly wouldn't want to add fresh fruit in the secondary (either soaked in booze or not). but, it might work??????
