well, i have to say that the dole strawberries did the job well but you dont know what youre going to get with them. they have a chance to be very tart and if that is the case, you are going to get that tart off-flavor in your beer.

my beer has in a little over sweet because it finished very high but it also has a little bit of a tart aftertaste which, when trying one of the strawberries, i got a hint of. if you can afford it, go to your local hippie organic place and pick up a bag of frozen organic berries. IMO, i feel that they are much more sweet.

I've used Dole frozen many times and have never had a problem.

Thanks for all of the advice! I've got a whole foods and trader joe's near, so I suppose I will go check out what they have. Can't wait to brew this beer.

I bought a 6 lb. bag of strawberries from Costco for $8. They specifically state on the label, no sugars or preservatives added, just individually quick frozen strawberries. I sure hope they are sweet enough since i don't want a tart strawberry flavor. I guess i'll have to thaw one and try it out before i rack onto it this coming weekend.

I picked up 8 (1 lb) bags of Trader Joe's branded organic strawberries and it taste great

Are you all racking on top of frozen strawberries or have they been thawed?

Must be my problem. I froze fresh strawberries for about a week-and-a-half, then thawed, then racked on top of them. My beer has an almost weird-ish strawberry flavor, not exactly rotten, but close. At that point the fermentation temp was about 73 degrees. I decided to let it sit a few more months to see if the flavor subsides. The taste it has now though I can really tell it has great potential to be a great beer.

I kept mine frozen, this is the best way to avoid contamination and the freezing kills avoids the need to sterilize the berries in vodka or something.
