I'm looking at doing a Raspberry Dunkelweizen this weekend. Their is a lot of information on this site about fruit beers and dunkelweizen.

Particually most people who have done raspberry beers have noted that the flavour is rich, but tart and in the darker beers only really the aroma is apparent. The general consensus is that Dunkelweizen need to be light on the IBUs yet rich in colour with no crystal malts. However i have allowed crystals to offset the sour flavours that may not be

I've kept the recipe small for two reasons:

1. If is shite than its not so much to chuck
2. I am going to try doing, (for the first time), a decotion mash in my rubber maid. Can anyone suggest a schedule?

So as a result here is my recipe:
