I want to make a cranberry apple wheat ale this weekend and couldn't find fresh cranberries to use because they won't be in season until November. Would frozen cranberries work the same if I were to use them for a cranberry apple wheat ale?
I am going to guess that in the last part the brewer meant to type in secondary but lists primary and did not notice this. I put that in Italics. Then it reads right.Brew this up adding the liquid extract late (20 miutes left in boil). Add yeast nutrients right at the end of boil before your kill the flame. Ferment in primary for 7 days. Blend all the fruit in a food processor to make a rough relish; rinds, peels, seeds and all!!!. Put that in the bottom of a secondary fermentor. Rack the beer on top of it. Save a little 8oz of beer and dissolve the pectic enzyme in it. After it is dissolved, dump it in the fermentor. I let mine sit in the primary for ten days, seven may be better to avoid over tarting from those berries.
I would add in the DME before the water was hot, If you mix it slow it wont clump as much. Then after it is mixed well. bring that to a boil. then add hops as normal.I was actually wondering which order to add the dried malt, liquid map, and honey after the initial rolling boil.
