Yeah, what happened? Infection? Too much fruit?

Next time...save it, distill it...

not too sure. Im thinking strawberry's in general do not mix with beer. It just got very tart. Smelled really good. I even tried adding some lactose and it just not do anything. Im not to upset by it. You have to experiment sometimes to learn. Im just gonna stick with the basics for a while.

I would have racked it to another secondary and let it age for a month or two. As long as there is no visible infection, the beer could have mellowed with proper aging.

Then again, fruit & beer don't mix. It's against the laws of nature.

The thing is was it was getting worse and worse. It tasted alright after a week in the clearing tank. Then two weeks a little tart, then when I went to bottle it, it was just gross, tart and almost a stale taste. I might have saved it by adding some strawberry flavoring, but just was not feeling this batch. I had better beer to bottle. I brew more than I drink so losing 5 gallons is no big deal.

My mango-peach wit would beg to differ.

Ed, your moratorium on fruit beers should take a vacation when it comes to belgians...and cherry stouts.

Prolly so, but when in Belgium.....

For me it's a personal thing. I'm not into big heavy belgian beers.

I tend to gravitate towards quality quaffable quenchers in quantity.

Mango-Peach Wit would qualify for this QQQQ designation, but I digress.

I know, personal pref...I typically steer away from fruit too...but that one sure did turn out well, especially for being my second brew...

Too bad this didn't work out, though ... a nice fruity beer for young college girls who might not normally drink beer ....... man, I wish I had been brewing back in college!

Nice Vickie's catolog in pic #1

Strawberries in beer sounds weird. Why no apricots if anything?
