Beer Style: Fruit Beer (20A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

Fruit Beer

Description:

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

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.
