I've never even thought about using juice actually. I've never heard of any beer coming out well from juice. Secondly, I've never had any luck with raspberry extract. It never tasted right to me.

Due to the actual fruit this beer is pretty expensive. However, it's worth the money in my opinion.

I have been trying to find some info about juice as I was thinking about adding Blackberry juice to the wheat I have in the primary. I can however just go pick some fresh ones if you think it would come out better.

Thanks for the help arkador! This is only my 3rd batch I've made so I wanted to make sure it came out right.

FYI for anyone who hasnt made this one yet, the initial fermentation with this one was pretty aggressive. Luckily I happened to check in on it at 24 hours in b/c my airlock had filled with beer and was about to blow off. My primary was in our coat closet and it would not have been fun explaining to my wife why her winter coats were covered in krausen. I attached a blow off to it and it blew off pretty heavily for a day or so.

Either way, I avoided catastrophe and racked to secondary on top of the raspberries today. I've got some good picks of the yeasties already going to town on the raspberries and I'll post them soon as soon as I figure out how.

BTW, when I opened up the primary the beer smelled awesome! Has anyone tried making this as a normal brown ale without the raspberries?

Just brewed this, but without the roasted barley (and a couple other changes).

eschatz - can you upload your brewsmith file?

I wish I could. I've changed comps a couple of times since then and have left it behind. I just got a new comp in fact and haven't brewed it since the new computer. You'll have to plug it in yourself!

What is the potential SG of the frozen raspberries? I want to get an accurate final ABV percentage and don't know if I should put 1.029, like with Oregon Purees or something else.

Thanks!

Just racked my version of this on top of some raspberries - it tasted great and at 1020 already after 1 week! It's gonna be a hard week of waiting.
