The answers to these questions aren't really germane to the recipe. I have made this beer using several different mash and sparge techniques over the years, and I am pretty sure if you ask 10 people who have made this recipe how they did their mash, you'll get at least 5 different answers. It just depends on your equipment and process.

Just fired up a batch of this on Saturday. My only mod was that I used some harvested 1056 that I had in my fridge. With the exception of learning that chilling with warmer summer tap water takes a little longer, everything went fine. Original gravity was 1.051 -- just .001 off the original recipe. Yeast has been doing its thing for three days now.

One question -- I do not have a plastic bucket fermenter. My plan is to just drop the berries directly into my glass secondary. Getting them in will be easy -- but getting them out will be the tricky part. I plan to quarter the strawberries to ease this process. Has anyone ever sliced up their berries a little smaller to get them out of a glass carbory?

Thanks,

Kevin

Magical idea just came to me. Since this beer accents the tart aspects of strawberries more than the sweet, I bet this beer would be amazing after some miracle berries.

If you have never tried them, they come in pill form that you dissolve on your tongue and it binds to your taste buds making tart things taste sweet. So you can bite into a raw lemon, and it will taste like lemonade. I've eat strawberries before with them and they are the most delicious things you will ever try. Think I have a few pills left, going to give it a whirl once this beer is done.

And for those interested, it's really cool to taste all sorts of things:

It may be somewhere in the posts already, and I apologize if it is, but am I correct when I say you mash at 152 for 65 minutes, then raise the temp. to 168 for the final 10 minutes? Thanks in advance!

Pretty sure it's just meaning a mashout

I brewed this a few weeks ago, and after adding the strawberries, the beer hasn't tasted tart at all. Comint out of the secondary, it's definitely got a berry taste to it, but it's been more of a old strawberry flavor, which is kind of a bummer. Hopefully the carbonation from the bottles will spruce it up a bit.

I'll post back later with my results in case anyone has a similar experience.
