I'm going to have to agree, I made some changes and the beer still came out really nice. Just tasted, took a gravity reading (1.015 after 7 days fermenting), and threw her on 30oz of raspberries and 10oz of blueberries. She's been on the fruit for a couple hours now and is starting to look quite nice! After the sample, I have very high hopes for this brew.

I mean I have the conversions done properly, but I'm just a little confused about what the IBU's would be. To me, this is just a typical brown ale with a fruit addition. With that said, should it be hopped to an American Brown standard?

Can't really help you there, I'm not a hop lover so I underhopped ontop of the fact that was already working with less AA's from my varieties.

I added in about 1lb of cherries along with the raspberries just for kicks - turned out very well.

Just bottled with malt extract and I must say the gravity sample was very tasty. Very dry almost wine like. Raspberry tartness and some hop bitterness up front (i made substitutions though) with a slight malty finish. Alcohol is present throughout, but almost acts like glue. It's holding onto every aspect but it's not crazy. My batch wound up at 7.7% abv, I primaried for a week, secondary for a week on 10oz blueberries and 30oz raspberries.
Quite pleased with this one but cleanup was a slut.

When, and for how long is this beer at its prime?

Is it bad if you use a higher % rate on the hops. I have 1 oz Cent at about 12% and 1 oz Northern at 12% as well. Should I go with less hops since the % is much higher?
