Raspberry Wheat Progress by Jeremy

The Raspberry Wheat Beer has been busy.

The raspberry sugars triggered a nice second round of fermentation that hasn’t quit after three days. This picture is was taken about 12 hours after adding the raspberries, even if it’s not clear, the beer was already looking bright red. Also, the new fermentation is producing a clean, full, white foam at the top of the carboy, just what I’m going for in the end product.

So, everything is on track and looking good. The only thing left to do to close the book on this recipe, besides entering it in a comp somewhere, is to get my hands on some yellow raspberries. They’ll add a great twist with a slightly different raspberry flavor and intense bright yellow color. I can’t find these for sale retail, so I’m ordering plants to grow them myself. They are early fruiting, but still I don’t think I’ll get a harvest until mid to late summer.
