I going to make a 10 gal batch of Hefe tomorrow. I am planning on fermenting 5 gal of it with rasberrys for SWMBO. I usually prefer to do fresh, but I thought I would try this canned purée from Oregon Fruit Products just for ease. Has anyone else used it and how did you use it? How much did you use? How did it come out compared to fresh fruit? Thanks. Check them out here:http://www.oregonfruit.com

I used the cherry for my Cherry Wheat. I used one can (5 pounds?), it worked out pretty well. I added it in secondary, then ended up racking to tertiary before bottling.

I apologize if this is a stupid question, but I'm a n00b and interested in trying a fruit recipe one day -- specifically, using apples, and so far this is the most closely related thread I could find.

A few questions:

From what I've gathered, some don't transfer a hefe to a secondary being that they are supposed to be cloudy...? If you are adding the fruit does this necessitate adding a secondary step?

The Joy of Home Brewing book mentioned adding (whole) fruit at the end of the boil or perhaps leaving the fruit in for the primary... , Prof. Frink -- why did you add it the secondary and then transfer your cherry to a tertiary?

I'm pretty new to the forum -- is there a thread/post you can refer me to?

I love Oregon Fruit Products. I used the Montmorency Cherries in my Spiced Cherry Dubbel. The nice thing is that they are already pasturized so less worry about contamination from the fruit.

Yeah... just a n00b here -- thanks for the links. From experience on other forums I was slightly concerned that your links might be a Rickroll

I would never use Jamil as a way to fool you...
that would just be wrong.
The man is an excellent source of information... listen to the radio shows, they are fun, and you will learn a lot...
