Hey I noticed the 60 minute boil time. You ever find you get the cream corn flavor with all that pilsner malt at 60 mins?

I have never had a cream corn flavor with this beer.

I could be way off the mark with this question but here goes.

I brewed this batch a few weeks ago. Last night I racked my beer onto my frozen strawberries. Before I did, I took a gravity reading. It came in at 3%. I don't know how I ended up with such a low reading but here is what my friend and I were thinking of doing.

Since strawberries have sugar in them, what would happen if we added yeast after we racked into the new fermenter? Would that get the alcohol level back up or am I way off here. Only been brewing for about 4 months now so take it easy on me.

Thanks

I honestly cant answer that question. I can offer some assistance if you tell your og and fg though. Keep in mind that this is a session beer and the abv should not be very high. 3% is too low but it will typically be under 5%.

From what I understand, the fruit addition will have a very minimal effect on ABV. 3% huh? Guess you'll just have to drink twice as much!

You won't have to add yeast. There is still plenty of yeast left in suspension to eat those sugars up. But it will not greatly affect your abv.
What were your og and fg?
