Fermented for one week, and then transferred to secondary. At this point, I added:
5 lb thawed frozen raspberries
2 vanilla beans
After about a week and a half, I tasted it, and it was delicious! Decided it was time to bottle! I was so excited about this one, I cracked one open after only a week. It's nicely carbed, and still great tasting. It doesn't have a huge head, but lacing is retained throughout. Picture to follow. I'm going to have a hard time not letting it age any further, or sharing!
