Razen Bitter
« on: June 29, 2013, 03:34:41 PM »
Made a Summer ale and added 5 lb. of raspberry's to the secondary. After a week at 67 degrees in the secondary, I rack to a third carboy. Tasted the result and it is quite nice with a beautiful raspberry flavor up front. The summer ale blends in the middle. However, there is bitterness (I assume from the seeds) that finishes it off. Not really what I want. Is there a way to reduce the bitterness or sweeten it up to mask as it conditions. This is my first try at a fruit ale. Any suggestions are appreciated.

You can add more juice or sugar but will have to add something to stun the yeast like potassium metabisulfite.

Or add some Lactose or Malto Dextrine.
