I may put more strawberries in the secondary, depends on what it tastes like when I sample.
I used roughly three pounds of strawberries in primary, nearly 12 pounds of honey, and let it sit for three weeks(?).
Transferred to secondary on top of 13/14~ pounds of cut fresh strawberries. (oh the joys of having lived in pasadena, TX. it just so happens that the weekend before I planned on transferring was the strawberry festival, so I picked up a whole flat of strawberries for 20 bucks. roughly 12 pints I think it was.) It has been fermenting away, and I'm tempted to take it off and transfer it over again, but I may wait another week or so to do it. From what I've read though, after the first week or so you pretty much get all of your flavors out of the fruit; and am contemplating whether or not to transfer it already or wait. Maybe I'll flip a coin.
