My fourth home brew was a Cranberry Wheat beer using fresh cranberries. I had hoped to make a seasonal beer using fresh, seasonal fruit, so I decided to try this recipe.
During my last batch, I missed by original and final gravities and I assumed it was related to my sparging process since I had a rather low mash efficiency. So this time, I increased the boiling, but… I later found out that wasn’t my problem.
With home brewing and experiments, there’s always a chance for the brewer to over compensate the wrong way and that’s exactly what I did. I overcompensated in the wrong direction and on the wrong process.
