Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: White Labs WLP300   
Yeast Starter: 2000 mL   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.046   
Final Gravity: 1.012   
IBU: 17   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 3.5 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 18 days @ 68F   
Tasting Notes: Pretty much an Abita Purple Haze clone.   

This beer turned out great! Perfect level of raspberry, bitterness, and wheat. I very much enjoy the pale malt as it gives a bit more body, and the carapils helps a bit with head retention. To me, this is pretty damn close to but a bit better than the Abita Purple Haze.

Actual OG was 1.050; FG was 1.015; IBUs was 17; SRM was 3.6. I carbed to 2.3 volumes with 4 oz. corn sugar for 5 gals.

I wonder if something has changed lately because the Purple Haze that is labeled as a lager, with pretty much the exact same recipe as Strawberry Harvest.
