I've used fruit concentrate (pure) before and like the results when added at kegging/bottling (esp. the rasberry).

I was in my NEW LHBS last week and all they had were concentrates that were pretty much artificial (every "flavor" was clear in color). The owner said that's all they can get. Anyone used these? Results?

Any comments on where to get pure concentrate? I just don't like the idea of throwing chemical flavors in my brew if I ever want a fruit grog.

Thanks in advance.

Hoptech's flavorings are natural and sound promising.

Several online homebrew shops sell Oregon fruit puree for wines, meads, and beer. It is not concentrate but it is pure fruit only.

You might also check out the frozen fruit juices at your local grocery store. Many contain little or no additives.

The Oregon fruit purees should be added to secondary rather than at bottling or kegging.

I agree with Bill, purees should be added to the secondary.

Adding purees at bottling would be asking for trouble.

See if your LHBS has those 3# cans of fruit puree for wine makers [but has NO grapes]. I use those in lambics and wheat beers - I remove 2.5g from the carboy and bottle, then add the puree to the carboy and bottle the rest in 6 months [lambic], and get two beers for the effort of one.
