- 6lbs Wheat Liquid Extract

- 3lbs Raspberry Puree added to wort last 1 min of boil
- Bavarian Wheat Yeast(Wyeast #3056) Made a starter two days before.

I will transfer to secondary probably in 5-7 days. I also have some Raspberry extract to add at bottle time if I want more raspberry flavor. Original gravity was around 1.040.

I'll keep ya posted on how it comes out.
Was your puree sanitary/sterile before you added it to the boil? A 1 minute boil really won't provide decent sanitation!

IIRC, most commercial purees are already sanitized - the heating of the puree does that. If I were making a home-made puree, I'd heat it to bubbling on the stove first.

The puree was a commercial brand I purchased at the brew store, I believe it even said pasturized on the can.
