I'm trying this with a 3-berry frozen mix I got from Costco which includes raspberries, blueberries, and marionberries, which I'd never heard of before now. It should be interesting...

had my first try of this, only in the bottle for about 6 days, so not nearly carbed. It is quite drinkable and tasty (I used blackberries btw). Will be a good treat to bring home for thanksgiving

It ended up being a tiny bit sour, but it's not off-putting and still incredibly aromatic and tasty. I think next time I'll cut back on the berries or use a sweeter mix just to perfect the taste.

Here is my question:

Right now there are 1.00 0z of Northern Brewer [6.60 %] (60 min) Hops 15.0 IBU. Will it help to balance the sweetness if I add another 1.00 oz and/or reduce the ammount of time in the secondary fermenter to 5 days from 7 days?

With all the fermentable sugars, after 12 hours the fermentation is quite violent!

Reason: Picture will not stay posted!

Hey guys, looking for any suggestions. I brewed up a batch of this yesterday. Long story short I accidentally brewed about 6.25gallons using a 5gal recipe. The OG came out to be veryyy low 1.038-1.040. Its already bubbling away in the primary. My question is, is there any way to bump up the ABV without ruining the taste? Adding DME to the secondary with the raspberries? Or do you think the raspberries alone will give it enough alcohol? I dont need a real strong abv, but I would like atleast 4%, 5% would be ideal. Any thoughts??? Thanks!
