This would be my first fruit beer, so with that said would 1 week in primary be enough I've usually kept my brews in there for 3 weeks.Is it beneficial for the fruit to be added to the brew that early?
I was thinking 2 weeks in the primary than 1 week with fruit in secondary.I just don't want to ruin the batch....

Mine has been on the strawberries a week today. I have not seen any bubbles come out of it since i put the strawberries in. Did anyone else not have ferminatation start back up? Ive been keeping it around 62-66 degrees

just because it doesnt bubble doesnt mean fermentation didnt occur. whats your gravity reading before and after adding the strawberries?

I added my strawberries 3 days ago and haven't seen any fermentation either. The strawberries are floating at the moment. I didn't take gravity readings either... oh well I did check the blonde that I used and that reached its fg. I am just hoping it is sweet and not tart! The strawberries were relatively sweet, just not super sweet like a later summer berry.

My OG was 1.060, and i didnt take a FG. I thought i would after it was on the strawberry. I should have done one before i added the strawberry though.
