Took a hydro sample last night (down to 1.020) and gave it a taste... Definitely lost the strawberry goodness... Will prolly stop by the grocery store and grab a bag of frozen strawberries to add this weekend...

After 2 more pounds of strawberries and a few more days in the fermemter, all went reasonably well...

I racked off to a keg after a cold crash in the fridge and added some Splenda for a back sweetening... (just picked up some poly sorbate for the next batch)...

According to SWMBO, I will probably add more strawberries next go around and maybe kill off the yeast a little earlier, the back sweeten with some sugar...

All I know is that after a few glasses while working on my new brew cabinet (ferm chiller and storage rack in one) I am feeling pretty darned good....

Wow, sounds intersting- how many more pounds of strawberries do you think you'd go with- another 2-3#?

What's your thought's on killing off the yeast? What about some type of Bacardi daquari strawberry concentrate that has some sort of sorbate- would that kill the yeast while also back sweeten? Or would that just screw the whole think up?

At this point, probably another 1-2lbs of strawberries added to the mix.... I got picked up some polysorbate the other day at the LBSH... Maybe add it before the yeasties are totally done and back sweeten with some turbinado or splenda for taste from there...

As far as the Barcadi mix, I have absolutely no idea... This is the first batch... SWMBO is happy with it for now (except for more strawberry taste)...

In regards to yeast, i used a Red Star Montrachet and it took off fairly well with a good starter. Talking to my local brew shop they say any kind of standard dry wine yeast should work fine.
