Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

I am hoping it will be similar to McMenamins Ruby Ale which has a lot of Raspberry in it.

Wanted another beer to judge against a pumkin ale. We like to have a party at Halloween with several types of beers. I give the guests two marbles to vote between the three beers I brew up.

trying something fruity for girlfriend

It is a favorite of mine and my friends request it to be in my rotation. I use blueberry flavoring instead of the raspberry flavoring.

Love this Beer - Going to try another fruit extract
This is a great summer beer. The raspberry is a great flavor. However, I want to try this with a blueberry fruit flavoring instead. However, this kit is a great buy. Highly recommended for a newer brewer.

Easy drinking berry brew.....But.
* * * READ * * * This beer came out as advertised and if your looking for a berry brew you'll love it. However, if your looking for a brew with just a hit of berry. I'd suggest only adding HALF the flavoring recommended and give it a taste. You can always add more. Other than that, two thumbs up !!

simple, good, clean, and smooth...
I've made this twice now. once with the berry extract in it and once without... The berry flavor is is good but that's not what I prefer in my beer. however the girls loved it! I prfered this brew without the berry additive. just plain... tastes like a good cream ale to me...

Absolutely, hands down tastes way better with a month or more time in the bottle. it was good after two weeks but even better with age.

Love it
I love raspberry wheat beer .. the reason I got into home brewing is so I can make this beer. I find shocktop too sweet; too much raspberry flavoring. More Beer said to start with 1oz of flavoring and another brewer shop said use all 4oz .. I used 2oz of the flavoring and it was just right .. you could still taste the wheat beer with a hint of raspberry flavoring .. so far I am getting alot of positive feed back. I put the flavoring in when I add my priming sugar before bottling, give it a light stir then I start bottling and wait 2 weeks :-)

Awesome, will brew again in summer '14!
This kit was great. I was hesitant at first because the berry flavor of a different kit that I used a few years earlier did not come through. However, after using the entire berry bottle in this kit (added post-fermentation process during the racking process), the taste was awesome. It wasn't overly fruity even using the entire bottle. We enjoyed it throughout the summer of '13 and will definitely brew it again for summer '14.

Best berry beer ever!
I love a Raspberry ale. Shock Top I thought was good but a little sweet for my liking. This recipe is well balanced. Not overly hopped or heavy on the berry extract. It comes with a 4 oz. bottle of berry extract that is just perfect for a five gallon batch.
1 week primary and 1 week secondary, and a week and a half in the bottle and you get darn near a perfect brew. Very drinkable and a good summer ale!
I highly recommend this kit!

My all time favorites
This was the first beer my buddy Rob and I made from here. We nick named it Buzz Berry Beer due in part to the high ABV as we added extra dry rice sugar. I have made several other brands of Raspberry Beers and none of them compares to this one. One of my favorites of all time.

Very Nice and Drinkable
Followed the directions to a tee. I actually used the whole bottle of extract and it has a hint of berry, which is ok because I think any more and it might have been too much. The girls love it. Nice cloudiness and rounded finish.

Very good
Even though it has a darker amber color, it drank like a light beer. It was a nice change up from the usual hoppy, or heferwizen beers I often brew. If your one of those beer drinkers that needs a hoppy beer or doesn't like a sweet fruit taste then this isn't for you. Big hit with the girls at the party, if that's not a reason to try it then I don't know what is.

What a kit...made it for a co-worker
First ever review, but worth it. I did this kit a while back now. The co-worker loved it. I put it in my primary for 1 week 2 week in the secondary. I waited to add the berry flavor until bottling, added a few drops per bottle, WOW!!!! Made all the difference...I have had some in the past where there wasn't much flavor to the beer. This one was definitely different. Definitely go with the Wyeast...I also used the wyeast starter with 10 minutes left in the boil as well as some irish moss to clarify the beer. You should try it now...
