Update on my Raspberry Wheat.
I did get the Big Mouth Bubbler Depth Charge and did not do a secondary.
After 10 days fermenting I put in the sanitized Depth Charge and a 3 lb can of of Vintners Harvest Raspberry Puree for my 5 gallon batch. I let it sit for another 10 days before I bottled. I did gently use the jam stick a few times.
I tried a bottle early, two weeks after bottling, and it had a little tart taste to it. Now a few weeks more in the bottles it has mellowed out and is quite nice. I think next time I may cut the raspberries back a little.
I am starting to think what else I can use the Depth Charge for.
The next time I do the Raspberry Wheat I would like to try frozen raspberries. I can get them at a local grocery store for about half the cost of a Vintners can.
Question, I assume I need to puree them first in a sanitized blender? Should I dip them in Star San first?
