see, i've heard the opposite, that once the yeast metabolize the fruit sugar, there isn't much flavor of the base fruit.

As long as you do not heat or over-heat the fruit to set the pectins, the debate comes down to primary vs secondary (which comes down to a somewhat religious conversation for some). I think the flavor quality of canned or extract vs fresh applies exactly to the quality you get in aroma/flavor eating them raw (although I would guess extracts will be more repeatable).

Then how do fruit wines retain their flavors? Or in that case is there just that much more fruit? On the flip side there is more yeast activity though...

Guys, guys, guys, let's stay on track.

Cape's concern is with a post boil sparge, not with the fruit. He's doing this to save humanity from it's own non post-boil sparging ways, so let's stay on topic.

I'm sure Cape would have answered, but he's busy eating his fruit filled crepes, broccoli quiche and sipping mimosas...pinky up, of course.

I can't believe I didn't see this thread until now. I read EVERY thread in this forum, and I missed this one.

In my defense, I saw who the OP was and I assumed there was nothing of value in this thread. I was so wrong!!!!!!!!!

I'm finishing up a 60 minute boil, and my MLT is still sitting here full of grain, for the first time ever. In my defense, though, it's cold and snowing and I'd have to take my slippers off to go to the compost pile and dump it. I'm just going to wait until Bob wakes up from his nap and ask him to do it.

However, I will point out to any new brewers who are wondering, I DID disconnect the hoses from the MLT, so that there is no way I could pump wort back into it. I mean, I could spray wort all over the brewery through the disconnected hoses, which has happened before. But no way could I pump fresh wort through the MLT.

Blueberries, huh? Gross.

WHAT... THE... $%^@!?!? That's crap. A big steaming pile of crap. If there was an award for "Adding most value" on all of HBT I would come in second... only to Revvy 'cause he trolls the Beginner forum looking for opportunities to copy and paste a tome on "no bubbles doesn't mean no fermentation". A CLOSE second!!!!

Such crap!

I just choked on my beer, damn you! And it was a good oatmeal stout.

for your information, I'm not sporting a SCAR! That right, a scar! And you just make fun. Hmmph.

Of course, I will acknowledge that a brewing scar on your tit is fodder for conversation.
