Wifey is crazy for Lambic and hates my newfound beer obsession.

This one is DEFINITELY going on deck. Thanks!

Started this as my first beer last night. Only made cider and mead so far. Had to add half a kilo of dextrose as I forgot to account for uk/us gallon differential when ordering DME. Had a question about after the raspberries are done though. Does anyone find it necessary to use bentonite or similar at all to get rid of raspberry bits/hairs? If so I assume you use a tertiary? Just wondered how that works if so?

Brewed this yesterday with some buddies. Turned out a little darker than I thought it would. Been in the primary for a little over 12 hours and already has a nice fermentation.

Wasn't able to take an OG. Our hydrometer broke!!!

Just bottled this up today. The little bit I tried was good but really tart. A lot of raspberry on the back end. I hear the tartness mellows with age.

I have read through this whole thread and learned alot about fruit beers. I made a blackberry wheat a few weeks ago but the 6 lbs of blackberries were added to the wort after the boil rather than in the secondary. Haven't tasted it yet but I loved the black cherry lambic krieg I bought at the grocery store a while back. I will definitely give this recipe a try. I like ales and I like fruit and I am too impatient to wait for a lambic to mature.

brewed this on 7/19/13, racked onto raspberries on 7/31, and bottled on 8/5/13...what a winner! like liquid raspberry. i upped the malt a bit to get to 1.060 and added a touch munich because the frozen raspberries listed sucrose, didnt want it to dry out too much. base beer ended at 1.015 so will call it about 6.5-7% abv after secondary fermentation with raspberries. just thawed raspberries from freezer and dumped them in before racking, no sanitation issues. this is the best fruit beer i've ever had- not cough-syrupy like those flavored extracts and not thin and bitter like most others. also has a lovely red/mahongany color. highly recommend this and will be rebrewing it quite a bit, thanks for the recipe!

I'm going to brew this after my Imperial Pumpkin Pie Ale is out of my primary.

I went through the thread and could only find the mention of cranberries once with no feedback as to actual taste. I'm going to do a bit of experimenting and add 20oz fresh cranberries and 20oz fresh raspberries to the secondary. Perhaps it's all in the eye of the beholder, but would cranberries give this beer more of a "holiday/ christmas" feel? Or would I be significantly risking drinkability with too much tart?

Thanks, all.
