Default Extract - Sam's Raspberry Wheat

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: California V Ale WLP051
Yeast Starter: No
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5 1/2
Original Gravity: 1.055
Final Gravity: 1.016
IBU: 24.6
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 5.2
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 - 14 days
Additional Fermentation: No

Tasting Notes: Very nice head with pour that diminishes to a lace that lasts. Very nice!

2 x 3.3 lbs. cans of Bavarian Wheat LME
1 lbs. Briess DME Weisen
8 oz. Caramel 10L
8 oz. Carapils
12 oz. Wheat malt
2oz. Hallertau Hops
California V Ale yeast (WLP051)
1 - 3 lbs. 1oz. can Red Raspberry Puree

Note : My OG was 1.055 and my FG was 1.015. ABV was around 5%

Fill kettle with 2.5 gallons of water. Turn on heat, and steep the grains until you reach 150 F (about 15 mins). Remove grains and discard. Bring to a boil then remove from heat add one can of the Bavarian Wheat LME. Bring back up to a boil once LME is fully desolved. Once you have a nice rolling boil, set your timer for 60 mins and add your first hop addition. With 5 mins left in the boil, your ready for your final hop addition. After 60 mins has passed add your last can of Bavarian Wheat LME and 1 lbs. Briess Weisen DME. Once extracts are fully desolved remove HOT wort from heat and cool with either a wort chiller and/or an ice bath. Bring temps down to 76 F and add the Raspeberry Puree. Shake or stir wort vigorously to aerate and mix puree with wort. Pitch yeast and ferment at 66-70 F for 10 - 14 days. Bottle condition for 2 weeks at 66 -70 F. It is now ready to be thrown in some bottles or a keg and Chilled. My wife and friends really enjoyed this recipe. Enjoy!

This became one of my wifes fav's. I tried some after 2 weeks of chilling in the fridge and it was still a little tart,but after 4 weeks...it was good! Nice hint of Raspberry flavor/Aroma with a mild bitterness.

Ive heard Watermelon is a hard fruit to incorporate into a beer. The taste and aroma are to slight to notice. The Raspberry was very nice. I would recommend bottle conditioning for about 6 weeks instead of the 4 i mentioned above. The taste of this beer was very nice once conditioned long enough.

There's a nice recipe for melon on the first page of fruit beer recipes. Has a lot of praise. Only knock seems to be head retention. I'll post back when I try it soon.

did yours finish up dry? I'm worried the whole fruit didn't act as well as your puree did. Has a little off taste and it's super dry (at only 1.020 from an OG of 1.060). I put a little in a bottle with some sweetener and sugar to carb so I can see how it will taste when done. I'm going to rack it soon but I'm not sure where to go now with it

I actually didnt try it until it had bottle conditioned for 4 weeks.

Correction, I did try it after 2 weeks and it was still a little tart. I can honestly say it got better with age.

How dark does this beer turn out? I was thinking of doing this type with cherry and was curious.
