On a whim, I decided to make a raspberry flavoured IPA. I bought a pre-made wort and some liquid malt extract.
Basically, I boiled about 1.5L of water with some raspberries in one of those hop mesh socks. The water got some nice color and a nice smell. Then I added another 0.5L of water and the wort. I mixed the whole thing for about 2 minutes, then I added the liquid malt extract. After a little more mixing I added the mixture to my primary fermenter (pail) and filled it to the top with cold water.
It's currently sitting at 26.5C (a little warm but still within the range given by the wort's instructions). My OG reading was 1.035.
My big issue with this though is the raspberries, did I add them at the right time? Should I have added more? Should I also add some during secondary fermentation?
