Berry, Queen of Scots!

Ok everyone ive got a recipe nailed down for this next addition to the bourbon maple syrup barrel.  If everything goes good we should be taking the beer out of there by mid febuary.  

11lb 12oz Marris otter

12oz crystal 40

12oz victory malt

6oz special toasted malt(marris @300deg. for 45min. night before brew day.)

2oz black paten

Mash at 157 for 90 min.

90min boil

.75oz centenial @60min

1liter us-04 starter

primary for 3weeks then rack untill we are ready.

The hops i used were the C-type hops we got from david.  If you didnt get any and want enough for this beer for free let me know.

be careful with the longer boil again we dont want to come up under volume again.  

Also i dont have the numbers we are supposed to hit on me once i get home ill look at my beer smith to get gravities and volume.

below is the curreny list of brewers involved, if anyone wants out or in let me know asap.

1. Josh Smith - brewed - $7.71 for Rasberries - Paid

2. Lucas - brewed - $7.71 for Rasberries - Paid

3. Jeff W - brewed - $7.71 for Rasberries - paid

4. Jonas - brewed - $7.71 for Rasberries - paid

5. Rich - brewed - $7.71 for Rasberries - Paid

6. Bill - brewed - $7.71 for Rasberries - Paid

7. Ken - brewed - $7.71 for Rasberries - paid

 

We can also start debating the amount of raspberry to put in when we do.  I think we should do 24oz frozen per 5gal batch.  So maby 84oz over this whole barrel, thoughts?

If you cant brew asap, or need any help, or anything let me know.

Cool, I entered the grains and yeast into an online OG calculator and got the 1.070 for a target OG.  It tasted great!

As far as brewing, I don't

As far as brewing, I don't think I'll be able to get this brewed until after Stout Night.  My weekends are just going to be a mess until then.  If that means you all need to find someone else, that's not a problem, but if that timing works out then I'll get it done.

Oh... my... god.  Why haven't we done this?    http://thechive.com/2013/09/17/guys-rig-up-buddies-plumbing-with-beer-wh...

Lucas,

Lucas,

That should be fine.  If you can brew on the 8th of feb. we can push the emptying / filling untill the 25th.  But that means that everyone else has to brew by the 8th at the latest.

So this weekend I had 2

So this weekend I had 2 different Raspberry beers and they both had an overwhelming Raspberry flavor.  One was Bluching Monk made in 2011, tasted exactly like Raspberry jam, and the Raspberry Truffle Abduction (their first batch) you couldn't taste the chocolate or the base beer.

Maybe start with a pound per 5 gallone batch and slowly add more over time.

I transferred my batch to

I transferred my batch to secondary last night.  It's really, really good.  The raspberry will mix well with this one, but we should definitely be careful about not overdoing it.  I wouldn't want to over power the base flavor.

I agree on taking it easy

I agree on taking it easy with the rasberry.  Should be a subtle flavor if possible.  I don't think it fades out much.

You should check out the

You should check out the extras in the group grain buy. There is a rasberry fruit puree that is pretty cost effective. You will have no sanitazation issues with this product. I think its about $3/lb or $120/42lbs
