I am trying this tomorrow also. Using a little more LME, but everything else the same. I plan to let sit for 2-3 weeks in primary, then add 8 lbs of fresh halved strawberries that i freeze before in secondary for 1 week. I havent decided if ill move to a tertiary or just move to bottling bucket yet. Im going with 8 lbs of strawberries only because ill have 9 ish lbs of LME. Ill update too when its all done.

what does the LME have to do with the amount of strawberries?

im thinking with the more extract it will be a little stronger, therefore using more strawberries to get a more strawberry flavor out. I have no clue but just thinking out i guess LOL

not counter the alcohol, but make sure there is a strong strawberry taste in there. Any advice from your experience?

bottling tonight. well post pics of a pint./

*edit* absolutely lied about posting a picture of a pint. i literally had exactly 48 bottles of this stuff and i was not about to waste a whole bottle full of flat beer for a picture. i had a tiny taste and the strawberry is not very forthcoming as i only used 5 lbs worth of it. i personally didnt taste the strawberry but then again i was pounding pale ales so i wouldnt have expected to. girlfriend said she did. mine was fairly sweet as i ended up with a much higher grav than suggested.

I actually just purchased AHS Texas Blonde to try this with. Gonna put 5 lbs of strawberries in the secondary and rack on top of them for 1 week to see how it comes out. Have a party in late august that this would be perfect for!

I ordered my ingredients the other day and was thinking about replacing the strawberries with apricots.Any thoughts on that, would this be a well rounded brew to substitute fruits?
