What do you mean by secondary, if using a kit such as Mangrove Jacks??I put a kilo of thawed frozen raspberries in my 21 litres of wheat beer. Added them when I moved the brew to the secondary and left them for two weeks. I put them in a muslin bag and weighted it down.
Once the main fermentation stage has finished some people like to rack (transfer) the beer into another fermentation vessel (FV) for a while before they rack into bottles or kegs. In general they are giving the beer time to clear without it sitting on that thick gloopy stuff in the bottom of the fermenter called trub (pronounced troob). They do this most often because they worry the trub might introduce off flavours.What do you mean by secondary
In 21 of wort litres that would be 4.2kg of rasperberries. Is this correct? Does it seem a lot?I love a raspberry wheat.
When I was brewing one last year there was a really good thread on this forum that helped me a lot. Lots of discussion about the amount of raspberries to add and how to add them.
Hello all! Planning on brewing something fast and refreshing and maybe something my good wife might try. I've brewed the GH recipe before and I'm tweaking it a bit based on some ideas I've read and other recipes. I normally brew 19l batches for kegging, but my plan is to get a 12l batch...www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk
I went for 200g raspberries per litre.
Added the raspberries straight to the FV after about a week of fermentation
I pasteurised them before adding (by heating to 80C for 10 mins). This also helped mush them up a bit.
Came out lovely.
