CAn anyone refer me to a recipe for or any ideas towards creating a smooth seasonal strawberry ale?
I have been wanting to surprise my girlfriend with this, and of course pleasing my palate as well.
I really appreciate the input, thanks!
if i want to brew a strawberry ale, i brew up a centennial blonde, use us-05 instead of nottingham, ferment for a week, rack onto the berries for a week, then keg
Blonde really lends itself well to strawberry, especially since it is easy to lose the strawberry flavor in complex beers. I just did a strawberry blonde and ended up using about 1.5ppg of strawberry and it came out with just the right hint of strawberry flavor to not overtake the rest of the beer.
