Just found this thread... I just racked my raspberry out of the primary. It tasted really good at this point!

I used 3lbs sorgum and 2 lbs rice, and about 2.5 lbs frozen raspberry. I don't think I'd want more than that. Can't wait for it to be ready.

Default Bottling/Priming/Etc

Just got this batch into the 1st fermenter -- and a few things occurred to me:

1. I didn't see any OG or FG numbers posted (my OG is 1.053)

2. I don't know what to use, or how much, come bottling time -- got any gluten-free tried and true go-tos?

Thanks again~
Mike

I honestly wouldn't worry too much about the OG of a posted extract brew. 1.053 seems perfectly fine to me. Punch everything into hopville (I guess its brewtoad now) and it will most likely come close to that.

Not sure what you are asking with number 2? Do you mean what to use to carb? Any sugar source will work as long as its not barley, rye, wheat, etc based. Plain old table sugar works fine for me. 4-5oz disolved in water per 5 gallon batch. There are plenty of carb calculators out there. I use brewzr on my phone for simple stuff.

Also the OG of fruit beer is a little tricky. You are adding additional sugar when you add the fruit.

1. No because I'm lazy, close enough is good enough

2. Use a priming calculator and aim for wheat beer level carbonation

Just wanted to report back that this beer turned out wonderfully. I've had non GF drinkers want some, which I always consider a good sign. Great for the sunny summer patio season. If it would just stop raining.

Glad to here it was a success. Can't go past a fruit beer in summer.
