Beer Style: Fruit Beer  (20A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

Fruit Beer


I'd second this opinion. I made a cranberry ale with 1.2 kg (2x600 g) frozen cranberries that turned out well IMHO. Nice subtle cranberry flavor/tartness. The ingredients were (if memory serves since the brewbook isn't handy).


  • 3 kg liquid pale malt extract
  • 1 kg honey
  • 1.5 oz Hallertauer (~4% AAU) boiling hops (60 min)
  • 0.5 oz Hallertauer flavoring hops (5 min)
  • 1.2 kg crushed frozen cranberries (steeped 10 min)
  • Wyeast German Ale #1007
