In my experience, raspberry extract tends to impart a medicinal flavor. I've got a similar recipe in the secondary right now--mine's a witbier. Added raspberry puree with a little extra sugar to the boil, then added 46 oz of frozen raspberries when transferring to secondary.

The amount I tested out of my hydrometer when transferring to the secondary was very, very good. And I'm really excited about how it's going to taste when I bottle/keg it in a week or so.

Well, technically this isn't a raspberry wheat. It's more like a Raspberry Brown.

Either way here you go:
Take all of the grains (crushed from your LHBS) and put them in a muslin sack and soak them in 170F water for about 30 minutes. Pull them out.
Bring to boil. Add Light Dry Extract and 1 oz of Northern Brewer, boil for 60 minutes.
With 25 minutes left add .5 oz of Cascade.
With 7 minutes left add .5 oz of Cascade.
In the secondary add all of the Raspberry puree (or whole raspberries).


6 lbs 8.0 oz Light Dry Extract (8.0 SRM) Dry Extract 87.25 %
12.8 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 10.74 %
2.4 oz Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) Grain 2.01 %
1.00 oz Northern Brewer [6.60 %] (60 min) Hops 15.0 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [6.40 %] (25 min) Hops 5.1 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [6.40 %] (7 min) Hops 2.0 IBU
40.00 oz Raspbery Fruit (Secondary 5.0 days) Misc

Take all of the grains (crushed from your LHBS) and put them in a muslin sack and soak them in 1 galon 170F water for about 30 minutes. Pull them out, and pour 1 galon 170deg water through them.
Bring to boil. Add Light Dry Extract and 1 oz of Northern Brewer, boil for 60 minutes.
With 25 minutes left add .5 oz of Cascade.
With 7 minutes left add .5 oz of Cascade.
In the secondary add all of the Raspberry puree.
I used whole raspberries in secondary that were frozen overnight before adding (to rupture cell walls)

eschatz, when you say it's almost like a lambic, does that mean it's as sour as a "real" lambic?

Try Hoegaarden Rosť. Not very good though, it had some off flavors that I didn't like. Hope they're not present in this beer though, might brew it some time.

I have been drinking this for about a month now. and it seems to be better (per my palate) with age

Since the first pint, it has gotten clearer (I keg) and the raspberry flavor has mellowed out and is less sour. So if you like it sour, drink it up, if you want less sourness, age it..

When entering a Fruit Beer, you must specify the base beer, I found the base beer to be clocest to an American Brown Ale.
