3 tea spoon calcium carbonate (chalk)
Mashing water/grain ratio: 1.25qt/lb (2.6L/kg) = 9.5qt/9.0L
Mash liquor temp: 167F/75.1C
Mash in temp: 154F/67.8C

Sparging water/grain ratio: 1.63qt/lb (3.4L/kg) = 12.4qt/11.7L
Sparging water temp: 176F/80.0C
Sparging time: 45-60 minutes
Yield: 78%

0.5oz Chinook (11.0% AA) for 60 minutes
1 tea spoon Irish moss for 15 minutes

Chill, aerate and pitch yeast (Activator smack pack)
Add 1.6kg (3.5lbs) of sanitized cranberries in primairy bucket when primairy fermentation is done (after 5 days in my case). Let the fruits ferment for a few weeks (~3) then rack to secondary. Let mature and mellow a bit for 3-4 weeks.

Add 5.3oz of lactose at bottling and carb to 2.2 volumes.

Tasting notes: A sweet and mild stout with a definitive sharp cranberry taste and aroma. Smooth and fruity. Chicks really enjoy it.

I would like to convert this to a extract recipe. How did you ensure clarity was sanitized prior to adding to fermenter?
