Fruit Beer

Description:

I am finding it very tasty. After a month it is somewhat sweet with a distince fruit flavor. I'm not sure that you can identify the flavor as cranberries without knowing which fruit it is.. It turned out somewhat cloudy but the color is a pretty rose.

Ingredients:

  • 6 pounds, extra light dry malt extract
  • 1 pound, Munich malt
  • 1 ounce, Fuggles boiling
  • 3 bags frozen cranberries
  • 1 ounce, Fuggles as finishing hops
  • yeast

Additional Instructions

Primary Ferment: 1 week

Procedure:

I thawed the berries and blended with enough water to make a little over 2 quarts of slush. Meanwhile I did a normal extract brew using the Munich malt as a specialty grain (i.e., put in a double layered pair of clean panty hose and stuck in the pot while I bring the cold water to a boil). At the end of the hour of boiling I put in the finishing hops and poured in the cranberry liquid for the final minute or two as I turned off the heat. I bottled after a week.
