Fruit Beer


Just wanted to send a message to those who gave advice or were interested in the results of my cherry wheat recipe. went well, but it seemed a little flat, as i inverted the bottles after adding polyclar and then set upright 45 minutes later before storing. some of the yeast was in the head and didn't help carbonate and also left a funk on top during the bottling fermentation period. plan to mix up the bottles to loosen the yeast and hopefully the rest of the batch will be better carbonated.

Half the batch is plain what and the other half cherry wehat. both good, although the cherry is definetly there. however, i would not reduce the amount of extract to add at bottling. anyway here is the recipe.


  • 6.6 lb Northwestern Wheat Extract

  • 1/2 oz. Tettnang (flavor hops- last 20 minutes of boil)
  • 1/2 oz. Tettnang (aroma- steep for 2 minutes at end of boil)
  • 4 oz. of ld carlson cherry extract, added after 1/2 the batche was
