I'll definitely be trying this recipe in a little while. Turns out I love fruit beers, so this sounds like it'll be a hit with my taste buds.

For bottling purposes are you just using a standard 3/4 cup priming sugar? I brewed a batch of this today and I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

BJCP scored average of 40! Score sheets ranged from 39 to 41. I can only increase my praise for this recipe. I had no temp control por starter, which I will change next time, and ferment at 68 instead of 75

My LHBS told me to dump the cascade and roasted barley from the recipe. It's only my second brew so I listened to them...

Is this gonna taste way off now? The guy at the LHBS said the extra hops and roasted barley would really take away from the raspberry flavor.

The only thing they recomended to improve the score was better carbonation (I filled my entry with my BMBG) . I am also going to pitch a starter and use temp control (which i did not with this batch) and make this one again for the Bluebonet competition next spring.

I had not had any in quite a while, and tried to pull a pint tonight, apperently there were only about 2 oz left in the keg for the last 4 weeks i was leaving the keg alone.

I would bottle prime this with 7oz of corn sugar, you want at least 3-3.25 volumes of carbonation. The carbonation definatley affects the mouthfeel, aroma, and taste.

eschatz, you have said more than once that you don't recommend using fruit juice but you have never said why.

i'm racking this to a secondary with the raspberries tomorrow.. what would you think about racking to a 3rd stage for a week or two for clarity purposes? Also for cost reasons I went with frozen raspberries.. should I pasteurize these?

Eshatz and I have both racked to secondary without pasturizing the fruit without any issues or infection. He used frozen berries, and i used fresh. They will be added to a 6% ABV base beer, so that is a pretty hostile envirnment for any contaminates that may be there.

if you want to rack it to a bright tank to immprove clarity, you certainly can, it would be easier to just coldcrash your secondary to 35deg overnight. i kegged mine, and let it sit in keg for almost a month and came away with very clear beer.
