Default we'll wheat again - wheat beer & raspberry syrup

Brew 8: We'll wheat again.
50 grams tettnang 20 mins boil
21.5 liters bottled water
3.1 KG wheat extract.
1290ml polish raspberry syrup ( 84g sugars per 100ml)
WB-06 yeast
1.071 og
Pitched at 21 deg
fermented at 20-23 deg for 3 weeks.

210 ml polish raspberry syrup into priming bucket topped up to 300 ml with chase spring water to aid mixing with beer.

1.010 fg = 8% abv

More fruity flavour in this than my first fruit wheat beer attempt
sample jar was strong but refreshing.

Great beer too!

carbonation tester, ahem. Seeing at my pet bottle firmed up nice.

Little head but then only had 2 hours in fridge so most co2 escaped on opening.

A little tart, Raspberry and red fruits. Close to kasteel rouge but with raspberries instead of cherry.

my girls both enjoyed it as did I. Will do this recipe next year for summer although at 8% it would make a lovely autumn beer as well.

The wheat beer base goes very well with the fruit, yet the 8% gives it the extra gravitas a wheat beer lacks.

A couple of these and the evening is history!
