ok, i want to do a ten gallon batch, and then seperate it into 4 2.5gal pieces. each peice i want to do a different fruit/additive.

One strawberry, one blueberry, one vanilla, and then either regular or im open to suggestions.

Im going for a light beer, all ive done in the past is light lagers (modeled after corona)
does anyone have any recipes? id rather it be extract with grains and hops
thanks so much!

i don't have a recipe, but i've done this with a beer before and found that the differences between the flavors are too subtle to really bother with, unless you are using an extract.

If the flavor differences were too subtle, you didn't use enough. Generally they say if you adding fruit, use at least 10 lbs per 5 gallons. How much did you use, FromZwolle?
