Ok so since I was in 8th grade my mother always wanted to brew her own beer. I'm gonna be a senior in college soon (exams coming up first week of may) and for mother's day I figured me and my brother would get her everything to brew her own beer. So my question is what type of raspberry beer should I get her? She loves corona so I'm gonna get her an ingredient kit for a corona clone (coopers I think is the brand) and she always said she wanted to try raspberry beer. Where we live it is probably a good hour and a half drive to get out of cornfields and find someplace that might have a Raspberry beer in bottles so I thought I would get her one of those in a kit form too. However not being to knowledgeable I was not sure what type to get her.
I've been looking and found I've got about two choices either A Raspberry Ale
or A Raspberry Wheat
Father not much help, and other family members and her best friend where not any help either. Not many people have ever seen her drink anything other than corona, maybe a blue moon every now and then. So I figured I'd ask you guys what would be the better choice? Oh and with this coopers kit
it says I need another two pounds of fermentable sugars to make it perfect so I was wondering what kind? Do I get like more malt or just use like corn sugar?
Thank you for any help,
I've been researching what we need to get for her for the past week now so I'm planning on ordering everything. Maybe even all from Austin Home brewers site seen that stuff about him helping the one guy out who has been having some serious problems. Just won me over with that, awesome guy to do that.
Plus after school and work settle down I'm thinking about looking into tasting some nice stuff then finding out what I'd like to brew myself, looks like lots of fun.
