    Hi All
    I've just brewed a Raspberry AG Wheat beer, everything has gone great so far and i'll be ready to bottle next weekend, this is my first attempt at a fruit beer and i'm concerned at how much sugar to add for carbonation, i normally dissolve 100gm of sugar for my ipa's and pales for a 38 pint batch and then rack my beer onto it to give an even distribution in the bottles.Should i decrease that due to the residue fruit sugars, the last thing i want is gushers, would be grateful for any advice here, cheers.

    I didn’t lower the sugar as such.
    I brewed a Raspberry Wheat beer earlier this year and followed the brewers friend calculator for a wheat beer.

    No bottle bombs !

    Many thanks for the info mate, might rack it off and cold crash for a couple of days before bottling.
