Looks good!! Yeah, I noticed my last batch had a pretty good tartness to it. Its 2 weeks in the bottle today! I figure in another week it'll mellow out nicely!

Just checked on my second batch of my variation of this. 2 weeks in it's at 7.1%, so I'll add the strawberries and sweetener tomorrow ...

I will be making a strawberry honey blonde. Have you ever tried adding strawberries to the boil?

Nope, always in the secondary. I seem to recall reading somewhere that adding to the boil isn't such a great idea.. I'll see if I can find that discussion.

EDIT: Seems to be the topic of discussion, and as with anything in homebrewing, has plenty of varying opinions!

I ended up just adding it at burnout and then cooling it. From what I read at 200+ degrees everything dies pretty quickly. Also I'm hoping that because I cooled it right away, there won't be too many pectins.

Just brewed this! The 4 gallons definitely showed me that I needed a wort chiller and a outdoor burner. Took forever to boil and cool down. The fermenter is looking real chunky. Is this because it took so long to cool down?

Chunky? Hmmmm... Did you use Irish moss or whirlfloc?

Ya I used the whirlfloc. I attatched a picture of it. It's fine. It all settled, but my strainer didn't get a lot of the sediment. I wonder if its from not cooling It down as fast.

Wow, that's a lot! Yeah my guess would be some protein coagulants.
