Just cracked my first bottle of a version of this beer after only 5 days in the bottle (I couldn't wait!) and it is awesome! It is obviously and little under carbed but the taste is exctly what I was hoping for I only used 3lbs of frozen raspberries which I heated to 160 w/ 2 cups of water and added to the beer in the secondary for a week prior to bottling. Great raspberry taste that is not overpowering at all. Thanks for the idea/recipe!!

Hey, I figured I'd give this a go as my vacation beer.

The HBS was running dry so I took some creative liberties and got the following:

3.3 lbs light liquid malt extract
4lbs light dry malt extract
2 vials of wlp002 english ale yeast (ive heard they under attenuate, so i figured double pitch?)
1oz cascade
1oz styrian goldings (5.5%AA, this was as close as I could find)
12.8oz of 40L crystal
3oz of roasted barley

I guess what I'm asking is, am I ok? I've never substituted before on a recipe and I want to make sure this will turn out alright. I assume yes, but looking for a little confirmation on my reasoning.

Sanitizing everything now, have to pick up some water and another muslim bag (thought I had extras, of course not haha).

Oh, and has anyone done this with any other fruit? I ask because I currently have about 38 oz of frozen blueberries in my freezer.


Cheers!
dave

og was a bit high at 1.064, but it was a bit hot here yesterday.
did a full boil, and went with a combo of s-05 and a vial of wlp002.

tastes pretty damn good so far, bubbling away vigorously as we speak.
Cheers!

I'm a bit confused b/c the original recipe says add an additional 40 oz to secondary.

Does this mean that I add 40 oz at flameout and 40 oz in secondary?

Also, when I convert 6.5 lbs light dry extract to pale malt in Beersmith, I get an estimated og @ 75% efficiency of around 1.060 or something. I adjusted to get an Og of 1.054 like the orig recipe says. Has this happened to others?

I actually used 48oz (the ones I bought came in packages of 12oz) and since I purchased DME by the pound I used 7 lbs. It turned out great!

Yeah, but did you add 48 oz at flame out and 48 oz in the secondary for a total of 96 oz?

Just the 48 in the secondary.

Have you made this before? The raspberry flavor comes out strong?

Also, the Ibu's he has for the hops are all jacked up. I'm a bit confused about this recipe here.

Yes, I've actually brewed it for the second time this past weekend. I don't know about the IBUs but I just follow the recipe (more or less... I don't get too technical). The first batch turned out great!!!
