3.3 pounds of Munton’s Wheat Extract (Liquid)
2 pounds of pilsner or extra light dry malt extract
1 ounce Mt. Hood Hop pellets – 4.5% AA for 60 minutes
Yeast: WLP862 Cry Havoc Liquid Yeast (If unavailable or you just hate that strain, substitute with White Labs WLP001 Liquid Yeast)
3 pounds frozen mixed berries (added in secondary vessel)
Boil wheat extract, dry malt extract and hops for 60 minutes.
Cool wort to 64°F. Pitch healthy 2 liter yeast starter or 2 vials of liquid yeast.
Ferment around 64°F for two weeks in primary fermentation vessel.
After primary fermentation is complete, rack beer to secondary vessel filled with 3 pounds mixed berries.
Leave beer on berries for a week. Taste after a week. After a week, if taste isn’t where you want it to be, leave it on berries until the taste is where you want it to be. I would think two weeks is a maximum time limit but maybe not. Rack and bottle/keg as normal.
