I just bottled this earlier tonight and except for one thing it's identical to the original recipe down to the OG and mash temps. I did let it sit in plastic for 21 days and instead of actual strawberries, I used 4 oz of strawberry flavoring. I did this because I brewed this for SWMBO and she really liked Pete's Wicked and that was made with the flavoring. The samples prior to the strawberry addition were amazing. FG was down to 1.012. I'm looking forward to this in the next few weeks.

Brewed this up tonight. Followed the recipe, but missed the mash out temp low. Still was close on original gravity (1.049). Strawberries in the freezer ready to go!

Coming up on the time to rack my second batch of this to the secondary. First batch went fast. Has anyone tried this recipe with raspberries or a blend of them with strawberries?

I have not tried the recipe with raspberries, but that sounds like it could work well. I am not sure how well the quantity would compare to strawberries, as I suspect you will get more fruit flavor from the raspberries on a pound-for-pound basis.


I have a keg on tap now, along with another keg from the same split batch that I fermented as a lager and dry hopped with cascade, instead of adding the strawberries. The cascade version makes for a nice session beer with tons of flavor while being fairly light on the ABV.

I've got this going in primary right now -- about a week away from strawberries. I plan on racking it into a secondary vessel with the strawberries. But you mention that you removed the strawberries before cold crashing. To clarify, you moved the brew to tertiary, leaving the strawberries behind? Or did you just physically lift the strawberry bag out of the secondary?

I usually rack off the strawberries into another vessel.

Any thoughts on using fresh-picked versus store-bought frozen strawberries? With strawberry season opening in early May I was thinking about making this with strawberries I picked from the local fruit orchard.

Do the frozen strawberries have an advantage?
