Fruit Beer


Very, very good. The taste does change quite a bit during the first two or three months in the bottle, going from more fruity to more beer like, to a very pleasant balance between the two. I may use more raspberries the next time around, though...

  • 500 grams Light clover honey
  • 0.5 oz Northern Brewer hops
  • 600 grams Frozen raspberries
  • 2 pounds Corn sugar ("dextrose")

Bring about 10 - 12 quarts of water to a boil. Add the malt extract, honey, hops and corn sugar. Boil for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn off heat and remove pot from oven. Add the slightly tawed raspberries and stir. Let cool to pitching temperature (about 24 deg. Celsius), sparge to primary fermenter and pitch yeast. Let ferment for about 5 days or until kraeusen recedes, then rack to secondary. Add finings and let sit for 7 days or until the fermentation is complete. Bottle (I used corn sugar for priming) and wait *at least* two weeks before tasting.
