Default Strawberry picking season

So strawberry picking season is coming up if the sun ever comes out. Does anyone have a great recipe for a strawberry wine? I have yet to actually make a wine, just put together the apfelwein from Edwort. A recipe and any tips would be appreciated.
SWMBO needs something to drink while I'm drinking homebrew!

Thanks

Dinnerstick,

I had seen that on a search. Have you done any of those 4 recipes? If so, which one, and how did it come out. Did you agree with the time table, and follow the recipe exactly?
We get some really sweet strawberries up here, and don't have enough things to do with them. You can only eat so many without slipping into a diabetic coma. I think wine will be a great solution for some of the less attractive berries.

Thanks

Just started a strawberry rhubarb wine from that site. Thinking those 2 together will make a good wine.

OK. I have put together the first wine on that page. I have two questions:
I notice there is no Pectin Enzyme. Should I put some in? If so, can it go in before I rack it for the first time?
Is there anything that can be done with the Strawberry trub left after racking? Kinda want to use it after having picked all those berries. A couple pies perhaps?

Thanks

Since it wasn't added pre-fermentation, I'd hold off now and only add it if you have a pectin haze that won't clear with some time.

Steve,

I read through the skeeter pee recipe. I thank you for the suggestion. It looks like something worth trying.
While reading through the skeeter pee recipe I realized that I made a mistake on my wine. I put in yeast energizer instead of yeast nutrient. I had assumed they were the same, you know what happens when you assume...
Any thoughts on what will happen, or if it is correctable?

I will leave out the pectin extract as Yooper suggests. Should I make the determination to add it after a couple of rackings if the wine does not clear?

Thanks
