Just brewed a copy of McMenamin's Ruby ale, a local brewery chain favorite. 1-1/8 lbs. of fresh raspberries in the secondary. According to my friend who's favorite beer is Ruby, it's exactly the same. Just the right amount of tart and sweetness in an all-day brew.

Looks fantastic. Willing to share your recipe? I am just finishing the lagering of a pilsner for the summer boating season. Have ingredients ready for a vanilla bean milk stout and just need a full day to be able to brew it.

That is a hobby I'd like to take up, but never got past drinking the beer.
I have considered it many many times, but I feel it is a really bad idea for me to A: have that much alcohol on hand and B: be able to control the amount of alcohol that it will contain. Not gonna lie, Im really impressed with myself for realizing these things and still not going through with it!........ is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
