I am thinking pink beer for ...you guessed it, Breast Enhancement Awareness Day.

I am a few days away from going to tertiary on the extract version - much thanks to Blue for the PM replies. My OG was a little on the high side, but the sample I pulled when racking onto the berries was tasty enough. I admit that I tried in my mind to add some strawberry taste while drinking it. Anyway, this should be in the bottle at my house just in time for the event I brewed it for - the birth of my third daughter. I purchased red caps and made my first labels for this brew, so there are pretty high expectations.

I will be doing my first BIAB all grain this weekend, so I can see this AG version being added to whatever brews are in my future between diaper changes and pistol cleanings.

YOUR MY BOY, BLUE!

(always looking for a reason to say that, sorry)

The berries sure looked good floating in the beer!
One week on berries is plenty. I wouldn't suggest less than 5, but that's just a guess.

Do a seach for Succulent Strawberry Blonde in the repices section. It's Bluelinebrewer's recipe and it's what I based this one on.

Congrats on the kid! Good luck with the brews.

Ok, racked off the secondary into a keg last night. Stuck keg in the frigerator to crash chill. If I were to run it through a .5 micron filter you think I could skip the tertiary? Im trying to get this ready for the weekend. You were right, smells GREAT! and PINK.

I dont recommend skipping tertiary. I did this in the last batch. Went straight from secondary to the keg. It doesnt taste right. More like a strawberry wine cooler than beer. This beer really needs the extra week or two of aging before being carbed up. I wont skip it again.

Hey Blue, I guess mine wasn't as bad as I thought it was. I took the keg of this and two other kegs to a party Saturday night. All three kegs kicked! I'm out of beer now. bwahahahaha Oh well. Time to brew.

I used the "search this thread" option before asking the question but didn't see it. Anyone try this with all cascade? I currently have a lot of it on hand. Do you think it's worth picking up some Saaz?

Im sure Cascade would give it a nice citrusy flavor/aoma. Certainly cant hurt. I use Saaz because i like it ha

Pilsner malt is VERY LIGHTLY kilned, and it is always a good idea to boil a bit longer. Unless you like the cooked corn flavor in your beer.

Looks like a pretty good recipe, and I might have to give it a whirl. I will most likely do a 10gal batch, and put 5 on Strawberries, and 5 on something else...I'm thinking PEACH!

Oh, and I love Safale US-05 Yeast. Hater's gonna hate, but that stuff has been rock solid reliable for me, every time I use it!

Cheers,
