General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Homebrewing Hobby Survey

call me paranoid but this survey is funded by the National Science Foundation, A fed govt agency. Sorry but I don't trust the govt enough to give out this kind of information... I don't see the need to go blindly into any survey that pops up asking about homebrewing...

A good, high quality concentrate will only have the natural sugars in them... no added sugars. If you're bottling, I would suggest racking to secondary, adding flavor to taste then let it ferment again, shouldn't be much though. If you're kegging I wouldn't worry about any further fermentation.

Keep in mind you're not going to use the full quart... and the time and effort you'll save over using real fruit is worth the cost IMO.

I would suggest what Euge said, ferment it out then blend to taste. However, go get one of the high quality concentrates online. The stuff the hombrew shops sell are sythentic and nasty tasting.

Have you ever carmalized raisins before? I'm thinking they'll burn easily... I would think add some to the boil around 5-10m and if you want more flavor add them at end of primary too. maybe something to help:

I've used it several times... I run it thru the mill 2x then mix in with the mash... I don't get the 'creamy mouthfeel' that Randy is looking for but I can taste it and I still get good head retention.

Look for something 100,000+ BTUs and you'll be good to go.

what temp do you plan to mash at and for how long? That will have an impact on the perception of IBU/GU ratio.
