I’ve got the NB American Wheat kit in primary right now. It’s my 9th or 10th extract kit so I am still plenty new at this…but feeling excited to try something “different” or off recipie with a basic fruit addition of some kind. Hoping to end up with a nice spring/summer beer.
My initial thought based on reading some of the reviews on the NB site is to add about 3 lbs of oranges, or strawberries, or some other fruit to the secondary when I transfer…
I’m wondering what other suggestions folks out there might have for fruit beers or what experiences you can share?
A few specific questions:
1) What about adding some honey with the fruit as well? 2) Does adding fruit (and its sugars) impact AC significantly? 3) What has gone right for you in this area before...what has gone wrong?
I’m also contemplating splitting the beer up into 2 sub-batches for secondary and trying 2 different additions…
