Fruit wine in secondary with tripel
« on: February 11, 2021, 07:00:41 pm »
Have been brewing on and off for the last 20 years and always enjoy trying something I have not before or seen done commercially. Worse case I dump five gallons of beer down the drain.

I've searched and couldn't find related question. 

Making a Belgium Tripel and thought of adding cranberry wine when racking into my keg (I let my beers condition in the keg) and letting it just mellow out in the keg for 4-6 months.  Anyone see any issues with doing this?  Also considering adding some oak staves for a couple of week.

Thoughts/advise/feedback much appreciated.  Cheers!

I am not a huge fan of cranberry in beer but that aside I don't think there is anything wrong with blending a fruit wine into beer. It's not really that different from all the puree-laden IPAs and kettle sours out there.
