Thanks to all for your suggestions on this. I've got my recipe all set up, but have one last question. Rather than use a secondary, which I would need to buy at the LHBS when I go to get my grain bill, would it make just as much sense to ad my raspberries like I would if I were dryhopping? My plan would be to let the beer ferment down to FG, then, add a dryhopping bag filled with raspberries that have been frozen and thawed out. I'd leave the raspberries in for approx 1-2 weeks. Then I'd pull out the bag of raspberries, rack to my bottling jug and bottle. I'm thinking that this plan would eliminate the need for a secondary as well as keep the raspberry seeds from getting into the beer.

Can anyone advise if they think this is a good idea? I really appreciate everyone's help.

Sure, just make sure you have enough head room, because those raspberry's will kick it in high gear.

Even after fermentation is over and I hit FG?
