Ah, I see that now, my bad. Thanks.

Still kind of a Brew n00b and am typically just a Brew Bitch but I need to be able to do it on my own.

Well update to the brew...I bought some raspberry extract, tried a lil, and decided it was a waste of money and didn't use it. The brew came out to a lil over 8.5% and tastes pretty darn good. Has a slight berry after taste with some berry aroma, over all ill try it again when I can pick some fresh raspberries and not have to use purée.

Just finished my last bottle yesterday. It went quick over the holidays and I held onto my last bottle for about 5 months. Flavor was still good with raspberry tartness and I would consider making again, but may do all grain if so.

No complaints on this recipe. I like raspberries.

I didn't get a lot of berry flavor, what was your method?

I did a 5 day secondary using 48 oz of frozen raspberries, and it has a lot of raspberry flavor.

My neighbors liked it so much, that I'm brewing another batch for them this weekend.

I've been drinking my first small batch of this stuff for a few days now, and let me tell you, it is GOOD. Thick, creamy head with nice retention, big raspberry aroma right up front and taste on the finish. Smooth and pretty well balanced. Gets a bit tart as it warms, but that's to be expected with all the raspberries. Also, the color is gorgeous - mine turned out a deep, slightly hazy garnet. This one is definetly going on my "brew again" list.

to date, this is the highest BJCP score I have gotten, at 42. Need to make it again soon.

I do the brown ale as an all grain 10gal, and do 5gal with the raspberries.

Alright, going to try brewing this a second time. First go around ended in a clogged airlock and the lid blowing in the fermenter. Going to use a Carboy and blow off tube this time around. Stoked!!!

I have had blow off tube blow out as well. It was on of the narrow diameter tubes attached to the airlock.

I now use the fatter tube that fits into the carboy opening.
