Okay, I am looking for a little input for plan to make a strawberry wheat beer. I currently have 10 gallons of this fermenting:
8# wheat
8# 2 row
Mashed at 152 for 60 min.
1 ounce Hallertau at 60 (3.4 AA 6 IBU)

My question is when It comes to adding fruit. I am going to juice the fruit and pasteurize in a ziplock in hot water. Then add sorbate to the beer before the fruit to stop fermentation. Any thoughts?

I've never used sorbate in beer but am curious to hear how this turns out. I assume you'll be kegging though.

Yes, I will be kegging. It just seems to me that it makes sense just like you would with back sweetening a cider. Like I said I would be heating the juice in a bag. I plan on consuming this fairly quickly so I dont have to worry about shelf life.

Yeah, definitely sounds like it would work. Maybe let the fruit sugars to ferment for a day depending on desired sweetness and abv.
