I just racked 6 gallons into secondary on top of 48 ounces of thawed fresh frozen raspberries.
OG = 1.057
Gravity into Secondary = 1.010

Color was gorgeous and clarity was great. Looking forward to this one.

I made the extract version of this recipe and it turned out great and is gone... It literally lasted a week and a half, and everybody said the same thing.. you made this????

Quick question, browsing freezer sections and found raspberries labeled "all natural" checked ingredients and raspberries is wondering if those will work since a 48oz bag is quite a bit less expensive then organic.

Thanks

Just make sure there is no added sugar. otherwise, you will end up with a stronger/dryer beer. unless you like the dry/strong beer.... ha ha

I made the all grain version and used the 48 ounce frozen berries thawed with the juice and it ended up a little too dry for my taste. Still a very solid brew. I may mash at a higher temp next time. Implants on brewing this again in the early spring.

For what it's worth, I brewed mine with an organic berry mix (Blueberry, Raspberry, & Blackberry) that I picked up at Costco for pretty cheap. The brew turned out absolutely fantastic and I cleaned the berries with some 151 as others had suggested.....strained the juice and 151 out and was left with 2 cases of great beer and a bonus bottle of Very-Berry 151!

I've brewed this for my 2nd time. 1st time I tweaked & made a Blond with Raspberries............. it was EXCELLENT. Now it's the OP's turn, but I have to be honest............... I've changed up the yeast again. The Wyeast 1056.

But I'm always cheating, I bought a different frozen raspberry package this time............. it says, "sucrose added" Tell me again why sugar in the raspberry's is a bad thing. I haven't added anything, help me before it's too late.

Edit: Big Picture............... lessons to be learned................................ 1) Read the WHOLE thread..................... even the 4 posts before yours. 2) Keep it simple stupid (KISS), different yeast is all I added............... you got that right? I read it again & I didn't get it. 3) HBT is the best brewing community out there.

REAL fruit tastes a heck of a lot better than extract. I had a couple different fruit beers by major labels and almost threw up. THIS recipe kicks ass!

Brewing it again.

Thanks eschatz!

I started a batch last night.

No major deviations except I think I have 8.6 AA on my Northern Brewer hops and I am at 13 oz of crystal malt and 3 oz of roasted barley. I got my OG to around 1.056 and my carboy was too full to want to add any more water. Didn't see much activity 6 hours later, but expect it to be in full swing when I get off of work. I started the yeast before pitching it also.

I am probably gonna run a little longer on primary so I can have my secondary when I head to Austin for the weekend two weeks from now.

Will post updates when I can.
