Next time you're in town...I'll give the beer I serve you the same consideration...
BM, rookie question. What effect does freezing the bottles have? How does it improve the Beer? Thanks.

I think it cuts down on foam when bottling from a keg using a beer gun.

Been away for awhile, however my SWMBO and her friends really enjoy this beer! Very good recipe, can't wait for it to warm up once and for all to enjoy after work on the deck or before and after the yard work. Very drinkable with a nice flavor / hop presence not to mention the golden straw like appearance.

Brewed this last weekend, took a reading today and got a decent smell of the beer. Think I might have some off flavors unfortunately.

It's highly unlikely that you'll be able to tell off flavors from a simple primary sniff. Fermenting beer wreaks with a strong carbonic acid smell and tingles of the nose hairs. Just leave it alone for 2-3 weeks and bottle/keg it. Taste the gravity sample if you want, but warm or even cold flat beer doesn't taste all that great. This beer will start to come into its own after about three weeks in the bottle and gets really good after about five weeks.

Thanks for the info. I have it sitting at about 72 degrees still in primary. Hit 1.008 and it's still going, been over a week since it first started.

One week in primary and one in secondary for this brew? If you were to add fruit when would you put it in?

I just put it on ~4.5lbs of mulberries after a 3-4 week primary. Will keep it on the fruit for about the same time. It is my standard protocol for any fruit beer.

Sounds good. Do you re rack again before bottling/kegging or just leave the fruit in there? What do you think about raspberries?
