Here's my 2 cents on Tony Rossini's query about rasberry ale. I just recently
made such a beer. First, 1-2 pkgs of frozen raspberries will not be enough.
I used about 8 lbs (11 12oz pkgs) and it turned out wonderfully, not
at all overly raspberry-like. I blended them with just enough water to make
a slurry and added it to the cooled wort (seeds, skins and all). I also
added 2 camden tablets to ward off infection. It seems to have worked.
No pectin haze at all. I racked into a secondary and left most of the
raspberry sludge behind. Here's the rest of the recipie:
2 Cans Alexanders pale malt extract
2lbs rice syrup extract
1 oz Cascades
8 lbs Frozen Raspberries
Edme ale yeast
This beer has a very nice mild raspberry flavor, aroma, and color but the
beer character is not lost either. Sounds like what your looking for.
