I'm just killing some time at work today, and I was thinking about racking my strawberry melomel off the strawberries next week sometime. That's when I got to thinking about how I'm going to get those strawberries out of the glass carboy when I'm done. Obviously they had to go into the carboy through the neck, but I'm wondering what kind of chore I've set myself up for here.
Any suggestions from someone who has done this before?
PS the recipe and procedure was:
10 gal Clover honey
water to 3 gallons
Premier Cuvee yeast
stepped nutrient additions
4 weeks in primary at around 70 degrees, fermented out completely dry
racked into glass carboy on 5lbs stemmed and cut strawberries for 4 weeks
* The color is amazing already, I can't wait to see it clear *
