This was the result of my first strawberry batch, pictures as promised........
Tasted it last night, so so impressed with the outcome! Strawberry is not overpowering, the colour is spot on, and carbonation perfect, very happy with myself right now

Now it's time for a 5 gallon batch

I let the syrup do it's magic. After adding it, gravity jumped 4 points. I racked at 1.02 anyway, so was still very sweet without the strawberries. Only needed 24 hours to carb up

I found 10 caps and bottles and a 1/2 gallon bottle that held some BBQ sauce. I got 1,000 or so caps on order they just won't be here until Wednesday

This close up you can see the strawberry fragments floating around. I back sweetend the 2.5 gallons with 2 cans of concentrate and also added some concentrated apple flavoring, 1/2 an ounce.
