Raspberry Wheat Extract Beer Recipe Kit
Medium-bodied with the flavor profile of a Bavarian Hefeweizen, but laced with tart, fruity raspberry aroma and flavor.
Meet the Raspberry Wheat: Mild, approachable, and fruity, wee found this to be a good gateway beer as well as a nice end to a warm summer evening or dense chocolate cake. Medium-bodied with the flavor profile of a Bavarian Hefeweizen, but laced with tart, fruity raspberry aroma and flavor. Natural raspberry extract added to taste at bottling lets you tone down the fruit or turn it way up, as you prefer.

Overall, this turned out well. It was my first time making it, so I used all the raspberry extract - next time I’ll dial it back to 3/4 or so.
Fermented in primary for two weeks then racked to secondary for almost four weeks. After reading many reviews about the raspberry flavoring, decided to add about 3 of the 4 oz of included flavoring that came with the kit when transferring the beer to my keg. The beer has a fairly significant raspberry aroma (which I like), but the raspberry taste is much more mellow and provides a nice smooth feel with just a hint of tartness. One of the best brews I’ve done so far...will definitely do again someday.
used half of extract with real fruit and it came out amazing
First time making this one. Only used two thirds of the raspberry extract and it provided a prefect flavor for my taste.
I did something wrong because I ended up with skunky beer!
