Just racked my beer onto 8 lbs of fresh strawberries that I halved and froze. Temp of beer was 54 degrees with strawberries. Looks good so far!

Without taking an FG reading, how did you know fermentation was complete? It won't hurt anything to take a reading after you rack off of the berries. I usually take it when I add the berries and have taken one again when I rack off of them just to see if there was any change. There hasn't been one. So as long as you know fermentation is complete, it doesn't matter when you take the reading.

Yeah I totally forgot to take it. I figured it had been 3+ weeks so it should have been done. I'll let this sit for another week and check it. Thanks!

Bump. I've ordered the components for this recipe, but I have a couple questions. Have those that used frozen dole strawberries run into any problems? I just want to use something with preservatives in it. Thanks!

Pale LME or Gold LME will work fine ask the folks at your LHBS.

you want something that does NOT contain preservatives. I found organic strawberries from Trade Jose and this **** is good and still have 1.5 weeks in the bottle before ready (i snuck one last weekend ).
