I was so excited to see this recipe on the 'Zaar, as I had checked this cookbook out of the library and wanted to try this. I liked the end result, wasn't overly excited by it, because I wasn't really sure what to expect. I used dried cranberries because I didn't have any raisins on hand, which made the beer a lovely pink color, but didn't add any sweetness. It was really fun to listen to the noises the beer was making as the yeast went to work. A fun recipe I will definitely make again!
