I may try this with my cranberry ale. This is my first attempt with the 5 gallon batch for this brew. In the past I would just dump like a pound of thawed cranberries in the 2g primary fermenter and that worked well, although I had some issue bottling with fruit skin getting through into the bottles. I was think about putting the berries in the muslin bag this time when I put in the primary fermenter. I just don't know if the cloth will get in my beer and if the cranberry flavor won't be as prevalent...? I don't know, will give it a try.
