Default Making a Rasberry Wheat?

I have a wheat in the primary now and tuesday will be a week I usually put in a secondary after I get to my fg. With this wheat beer I have some rasberry extract in a small bottle to add, should this be done in the secondary or can I add it now and let it sit on the cake for 2 more weeks. It makes sense to rack it into the secondary to get some sort of mixing action but I am up for suggestions

Just put it in your keg when you keg it and don't do a secondary at all.

In general you mix it right before bottling or kegging. So drop into your keg or bottling bucket. I dropped it in right with my priming sugar. racking on top of it should mix it, but I gently stir the bottling bucket just in case.

+1 to adding flavored extract at the last possible time. Fruit aromas have a tendency to fade when given time.

I have always used raspberries in the secondary for my Ras Ale. It's in my Recipe List. You can look at that to see how I do it.

I did a cherry wheat with extract a couple of months ago.

I mixed the extract with a little vodka (to "kill the germs") and dumped it into the keg about halfway through racking. I was worried I might get pure extract up the dip tube, so dumped it into the middle.

I believe the fruit extracts are alcohol based, so I wouldn't worry about sanitizing it. They're made to be added directly.
