Has anyone tried this at 52F with lager yeast? Thoughts? I may give it a whirl with Wyeast Urquell.

I had this in my primary for a week and the airlock never bubbled. I was a little worried, but the gravity dropped from 1.058 to 1.026 after the first 4 days, so obviously it was working... Racked onto 7lbs of strawberries after a week (wish I'd of used a bucket, but all I had ready was a carboy). Within a few hours I had a strawberry volcanoe, blew the top right off.

Some time constraints have put me in a pickle with this brew. Today I am scheduled to go to tertiary, but I won't be able to get it out of the tertiary for about 8 weeks. Should I go ahead and just keg it from the secondary (it's in with the strawberries right now)? Which would be the least damaging for this brew? Thanks.

You would have no problems letting it sit for 8 weeks in tertiary. However, if I was kegging this beer, I would absolutely skip a step and rack it to the keg. You are going to force carb it anyway, I assume, so as long as it is airtight, I would say you are good to go.

Yep, I'll be force carbing, but I won't have it on gas the whole time I'm away. I'll just keg it, purge it, and give it a healthy shot of CO2 before I leave, and then I'll just keep it in my ferm chamber so the temp won't fluctuate too much. Thanks for your input, WildGinger!

That will work. I juat got my kegging system and for the beers i will secondary (or tertiary) i plan to do it directly in the keg and eliminate a step. Good luck. Safe travels!

I second the straight to keg option. Or keep in tertiary. Obviously just don't keep it on the strawberries that long. When I made this batch, it would have really benefited from a longer holding phase perhaps in a tertiary or in my keg for a few weeks or months to kill some tartness. But I drank it all. Hope you enjoy!

My OG was 1.058, spent 7 days in primary, then 7 days in secondary (w/berries), and now 2 full weeks in tertiary. For the last 2 weeks my gravity has been 1.017... gonna give it one more week, maybe 2, before I bottle... gravity just seems high. Anyone else have a FG this high?

My OG was 1.052 and finished at 1.010. It only spent 8 days in primary at about 65* and 7 in secondary at about 70* with the strawberries. Turned out great. Made the mistake of letting people taste it. Now it is disappearing very quickly.

I did a variation of this. I did a redhook blonde extract recipe I have done before that my wife thoroughly enjoyed so figured I'd brew it again and rack it onto the strawberries. Should turn out nice. Here's the extract I did.

6lbs Light LME
1lb Honey
8oz Flaked Barley
1oz Tettnanger - 60 min addition
Edme Dry Yeast

It has been in the primary for a week today. I'll be racking it onto the strawberries next weekend. I keg so I'll be skipping the tertiary step and just letting it clear up and carb in the keg.

I wanted to do the original recipe as is, but my LHBS looked at the recipe and said it would be a lot higher than the 1.060 range. Not sure why they said that...and then I believed them on top of that. I wanted a sessionable beer for my wife. After doing some of my own calculations, the 8lbs of LME in the original recipe calculates right out to the 1.060 range. So, I think the LHBS were smoking the good stuff that day. Anyways, I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

I may actually do the All Grain version next time. I was limited on time this round so wanted a quick brew so went with the extract. My wife is super excited for this brew regardless.
