Raspberry Wheat 2.0

I’m getting back on the brewing bicycle.  My new brew buddy, Alyssa and I decided to spend an icy Friday together while the city was shut down.  We did a re-make of my previously brewed 4th of July Red Raspberry Wheat Beer.  We made a few little changes to the recipe – some intentionally, some not.  Still excited for the beer.  Shout out to Base Camp Brewing Company‘s 2nd Anniversary Biere De Garde for providing the drinking beer for today’s adventure.
