when you guys rack off the strawberries, do you squeeze or press the berries a bit to get the beer that is soaked in them out? i feel like he berries are going to take a lot of the beer out and wonder if doing that a bit is a good idea to get the most beer as possible

I leave them alone. You may lose some to beer, but I don't think it would be worth getting a super cloudy beer IMO.

I'm going to be bottling this beer on Friday. I can't wait. Mine turned out a little darker than probably what was intended because I went off the page a little bit and used Organic Malt Extract. But it still had a reddish hue to it and seemed ok going into tertiary (still smelled and tasted like beer). I will post up some pictures soon.

I just racked off the berries into tertiary. Smelled amazing, took a quick sample and its quite tart, almost wine esque. I know most people mentioned the tartness, but that will start to fade once it sits around for a bit then gets bottled im assuming.

cant wait for it to finish

I was going to leave it on the berries for 2 weeks. But then I re-read this post and saw that it was only supposed to be on the berries for seven days. So I racked off the berries after seven days and onto gelatin in the tertiary for some clarity.

Can't wait for this beer. My company is throwing a holiday party and I plan to serve this beer up to them as my focus group on how it tastes and what I might change to make it better. good to have some guinea pigs.

Any Thoughts about doing this in the Mr. Beer keg? I know I would have to cut the batch down, and instead of topping off my keg at 2.5g would have to just do 2g to leave room for the strawberries.

Worried about the open fermentation instead of airlock in the tetriary

I just bottled last night. Very sweet smell of strawberries, had to taste a bit, had a very wine-esque taste to it.

Anyone else have similar before bottling? hoping that it just needs a bit of time to "beer-up" persay.

Yep, mine always has a pretty sweet smell to it. The strawberry flavor will mellow out over time. It hits its prime after about 5 weeks in the bottle, IMHO.
