This beer has a very nice mild raspberry flavor, aroma, and color but
the beer character is not lost either.
- 2 cans, Alexanders pale malt extract
- 2 pounds, rice extract syrup
- 1 ounce, Cascades hops
- 8 pounds, frozen raspberries
- Edme ale yeast
I used about 8 lbs (11 12oz pkgs) and it turned out wonderfully, not at
all overly raspberry-like. I blended them with just enough water to make
a slurry and added it to the cooled wort (seeds, skins and all). I also
added 2 campden tablets to ward off infection. It seems to have worked.
No pectin haze at all. I racked into a secondary and left most of the
raspberry sludge behind.
