I have a blonde ale sitting in the primary fermenting right now. I was originally going to add raspberries and then I thought it might be good with peaches too. Is there any reason not to try a raspberry peach blonde ale? Would there be too many flavors competing if I did that or should I go for it?

I'd say go for it! It'll be a fruit explosion in your mouth. Just be sure to pasteurize the fruit before adding it.

I am using pre-packaged frozen fruit and its going in the secondary where the alcohol content will kill most germs so its probably not entirely necessary. I will probably blanch the fruit in 160F water for about 60 seconds though just to make sure there aren't any wild yeasts. I've heard that pasteurizing can steal a lot of the fruit flavor though.
