I posted about my summer in the briar patch picking Blackberries
to make wine. Then decided to ask for beer receipes for the Blackberries.
Thanks to John DeCarlo and many others who responded and
encouraged me to do it!! WELL I made a Wheat Beer and added some of the
hard worked for Blackberries for what has been the BEST DAMN BEER I HAVE
Note: I have made 3 batchs of this. All have been GREAT. I added more
DME to one or two of the batches.
- 6.6lbs Irks Wheat extract
- 1-2 lbs Amber Dry Malt Extract
- 2 cups Carapils
- 1 1/2 oz Hallatter hops (bittering)
- 1 tsp Irish moss
- 1/2 Saaz hops (finishing)
- 3 1/2 quarts FROZEN blackberries added to help cool wort
- 1 cup corn sugar for priming
- Wyeast #3056 and 1 quart starter
Put cracked Carapils in cold water and leave in until just before boil.
Add Wheat extract and DME and boil. Added Bittering hops boil 25min.
Add Irish moss, boil 30min. Add finish hops boil 2 min, Remove from heat.
Put pot in sink of cool/cold water and add Blackberries. As they thaw
crush berries with your spoon. Remove hopbag(a lot easier than straining
them out). Put everything in 6 1/2 gal bucket or carboy fill to 6 gal mark
with water and pitch yeast.
Start at 70 degrees F , after ferm starts move to 60 F , xfer to 2ndary
after 5-7 days. Leave in secondary 7-14 days(I go 14) you may want to
use gelitin or polyclar to help settle things out(5-7 days before bottling).
Bottle with 1 cup corn sugar. Wait 2 weeks and enjoy so good homebrew.
