I made this for SHMBO and its the only reason I made beer with fruit in it.

Strawberry Blond Lager AG
Basically an America Light Lager with 5# of strawberrys in the secondary.

8# Pale Malt (2 Row) US
1.5# White Wheat Malt

3/4 oz Cluster 60 min (7%)
1/4 oz Cluster 45 min (7%)
1/2 oz Tettnang 5 min (4.3%)

White labs WLP 840 American Pilsner Lager yeast (1 gal starter)

122deg 20 min
153deg 60 min
60 min boil
5.5 gal in Primary

Pitched & Fermintation at 53deg for 10 days

Moved to secondary at 38deg for 3 weeks

Heated 5# strawberrys to 150 deg for 15 min then cooled and put in a 6 gal carboy.

Racked Large on top of the strawberrys for 2 weeks.


It's been 2 month and I've been cool conditioning the Strawberry blond in bottles.

I taste one every week, and I still don't like fruit in beer~!

Never again

Unless she wants it.
Brewers make wort, yeast make beer, God is good!
