I need to know how this turns out. How much strawberries did you use?

Also something that might help in this forum is posting either the recipe or a link to it. Pics are going to make people want to brew even more!

I'm sorry for your loss. It seemed like things were going so well ...

What do you think went wrong? Too much fruit?

Ouch. I recommend sticking to barley malt, hops, yeast & water. No fruit in my beer. If I want a fruity drink, I'll make a watermelon margarita.
