I am doing the following recipe
.75 lb Garmbrinus Honey Malt
.25 lb Dingemans Biscuit
6 lbs Pilsen malt syrup
1 oz cluster hops
It is currently in my primary.
I am thinking of racking into a secondary with 5 lbs of pasteurized strawberries.
Would this be a good combination to make a
"strawberry cream ale" ?
The only reason I am picking strawberries is because they are on sale at my local supermarket for 84c a lb for fresh ones.
Whadda you guys think? I am a newb, as this is only my 4th batch of beer, but I want to give it a twist from the brewers best kit that I bought.
Also, after I rack it to secondary with the fruit ( I only have a 5 gallon carboy for a secondary... primary is a 6.5 pail), will I need to rig a blow off valve (given it is full to the neck)?
