Re: Anyone made a Raspberry Ale? Just a couple of questions

thanks for the input chaps, just gonna have to be patient then, using s05 as its a yeast that wont hurry, the only thing i,m unsure about is the final gravity on adding 2 1/2 kilo frozen,thawed rasps on top of the original which should come out about 4.8% before adding.
