Yea sounds good. Just don't know why you would rack on to them when you can add to primary. Interesting. But... If they are thawed then mashed into secondary through a funnel then it would be easier.

From what I have read you would most likely have a huge blow off and lose most flavor so you would have to rack on strawberry extract or something to get back flavor and it would probably be better to mash it you would most likely get more flavor but I was being lazy

So I bottled today and took a sample it's pretty good the strawberry flavor was very pronounced which I'm hoping it will mellow out a bit in bottling condition I racked 5 gallons on 3 lbs frozen strawberries for a week

I put 6lbs of frozen whole strawberries from Costco in the secondary and racked it to a third one after a week. Going to wait a month or so to let it clear up.

Just a heads up the strawberries are nasty looking when you are done with them.

I tested a bottle after two weeks and it was very good the honey smoothed it out and there is a hit of strawberry in the after test I would recommend any one to try this I just used a blonde kit add honey at 15 min till, primary two weeks, secondary on 3 lbs frozen, bottled conditioned for two weeks.
