Beer Style: Fruit Beer  (20A)

Yield: 5 US gallons

Fruit Beer


Fantastic raspberry wheat recipe. I found this recipe and tweaked it just a bit to my tastes and my wife and I really enjoy it.

Add raspberries to your secondary and let it go to town. Your final gravity may be as low as 1.005, which will give you an incredibly strong beer, but easy to drink. Let it smooth out over the course of another week or so.

My recipe was for a 5.5 gallon batch.


  • 5.5 lbs Wheat Malt
  • 5.5 lbs 2-Row pilsner
  • .5 lbs Crystal Malt
  • .5 lbs Flaked Oats
  • 2.5 lbs frozen raspberries
  • 1 oz. Hallertau Hersbrucker
  • Wyeast 1056

Additional Instructions

Primary Ferment: 5-7 days in primary at 68 degrees
Secondary Ferment: 14 days in secondary at 68 degrees

Beer Profile

Original Gravity: 1.055

Im brewing this today and have a question
Do you add the berries in frozen or thaw and mash in a blender.

I'm on my 4th batch. Great base recipe! For extra security I've been adding 0.5 lbs of rice hulls to prevent a stuck sparge. Not sure if it's really necessary, but hasn't affected outcome. First time followed to a 'T' and turned out quite good considering my first attempt at all grain and a wheat beer at that. With my confidance up, I experimented on my 2nd batch with Imperial style by adding extra grain, dextrose and 0.5lb of honey to get the OG up. I don't have chilling equipment, weather was quite warm, so this one fermented way to hot and fast, turned out brown and cloudy, palatable, but not great. Don't blame the experimentation, just lack of QC in my setup. 3rd batch I subbed American 2-row for the Pils and turned out great - I also bumped up the fruit to 3 or 3.5 lbs as I felt the fruit wasn't coming through as much as I wanted. I still felt it could use a bit more. My 4th batch is in secondary and very purple. I bumped up the fruit to maybe 4+ lbs or so (a bit of a frozen raspberry measuring mistake) so hoping this gets me close. The reciped doesn't call out the Lovibond for the Crystal - I've been using 20L. I've also been consistantly getting higher OG and FG than stated which seems to match up with the calculators. Calculators say 1.062 for 5.5gal; 1.069 for 5.0g. I've been getting 1.066 at 5.5g. The final ABV seems about rignt at 6.5% just finishing with a bit higher FG. Again, great recipe.

This is the third time I have brewed this recipe which is amazing. This time I screwed up and had no raspberries. I substituted with blueberries which I racked a third time after 48 hours in the secondary. I was concerned any longer the beer would look like wine. It turned out better than I could have possibly imagined! Beautiful color,flavor but less gravity than the original recipe. I will use this recipe as a base from now on, although the original is damn good. Thank you for this wonderful creation!

This was only the second beer I have made and the first all grain, and it turned out great. I did brew in a bag, burned a hole in the bag, and couldn't keep the mash temp consistent at all. I added an extra half pound of wheat malt and 2-row pilsner each and the OG came out a hair above the 1.055 (I got 1.057). I used 3 pounds of frozen raspberries instead of the 2.5 in the recipe. Even with messing up the mash the beer came out phenomenal and still tasted pretty light considering it was over 6% abv. I am planning on brewing a second batch again this week using a mash tun, I'll be back to say how it goes.
