I'm thoroughly interested in making a strawberry shortcake beer, partly because I wanna see if I can do it, but mainly because I need something to satisfy SWMBO, whose favorite dessert is strawberry shortcake.
I know I would use strawberries in secondary and use lactose for the creaminess factor, but I'm looking for the right combo of malts to emulate a sweet, bready cake flavor.
I was thinking of using a good bit of munich or maybe vienna in the mash, along with some victory and lighter caramel malts.
Anyway, boomstick, how did this recipe turn out for you? Any suggestions on how to approach this?
