Mash at 159 F

Single infusion mash at 159°F (71°C) for 60 minutes. Once fermentation slows after a few days, rack onto pre-frozen and thawed raspberries at a rate of 2.4 pounds per-gallon. A large paint strainer bag is recommended to hold the fruit. The 5.5 gallons of beer plus the fruit fills a 7.9 gallon wine fermenter nearly to the top.

Keg, carb and back sweeten to taste with apple raspberry concentrate. Keep the beer cold to prevent secondary fermentation.
