I made a very nice Raspberry Ale this summer that got raves from all
my friends. Give it a try.
- 6.6lb Light Malt Extract (John Bull unhopped)
- 0.5lb British crystal Malt (cracked)
- 3 oz Hallertau hop pellets (3.1% Alpha)
- 1 tsp Irish Moss
- 5-12oz boxes of frozen Raspberries
- Wyeast 1098 English Ale liquid yeast
Steep cracked crystal malt in your brew pot with 1-2 gals water
coming to a boil. Remove crystal at 170 F. Bring to rolling boil
and added malt extract. Boil for 15min and then add 2.5oz
Hallertau hops in a hop bag.
Boil for 45 more minutes and add Irish Moss, 0.5oz Hallertau hops
for aroma to hop bag and the frozen Raspberries (previously rinsed and
Leave on heat for 5 more minutes. Turn off heat, remove hop bag and
let stand for 10 more minutes. Cool, top off to 5 gals and pitch yeast.
Be sure to leave the raspberries in the wort during the primary ferment.
Transfer to a secondary after 2-3 days and leave the raspberries behind.
