I am on my 5th batch of my strawberry blonde and I like to take a duel approach to this. First I like to wash about two lbs. of strawberries and blend to mush to add a pink tint to the beer. Then I add the extract at bottling or kegging. I found using all real strawberries makes it to tart. This is a beer for my wife and she likes it a bit on the sweeter side.
