I save one beer from every batch, stick in the back of the closet and pull it out a year after bottling. I tried last years Strawberry Blonde the other day. After one year, it was amazing! Maybe better the remainder of the batch. So I defintely agree that aging is a key factor.

How would one go about stabilizing and sweetening? Lactose?

Just racked to tertiary with gelatin. Ended up at 1.009 from about 1.060. Immediately dropped it into the keezer to cold crash. How long until I should keg? I'm thinking at least a week. Thoughts?

Looks just like I remember it!! I may have to break out the equipment and brew this one again as my "back to brewing" beer!

I brewed this a couple of months ago. Make sure you give this one time to develop. It was really good after being kegged for a couple of weeks, and luckily I didn't drink it too fast; by the time it was gone, it had a very smooth and full mouthfeel, and it was almost "creamy." This just got better and better, and I was really sad when it was gone. I'm posting here now because I'm gonna brew another batch really soon! Thanks again for this great recipe!

Pic from when I put the last batch in the secondary.

I'm reading a fair amount of "tart" finish from this. A few questions (I've read through 160 posts, but admittedly not all posts in the thread).

Has anyone sweetened the recipe with some crystal or honey malt? I've had great luck with 10% or so honey malt leaving nice sweetness.

Also, has anyone made this into a pale ale? I'm wondering how the strawberries (tart, even) would work with a somewhat bitter beer, perhaps a nice neutral hop like Nugget, Willamette or a noble hop? You could even go citrusy and have a nice citrus/strawberry V8 Splash type flavor?

Considering making this for a Spring Beer Competition coming up very soon.
