Strawberry blonde on the left. Needs more time in the bottle to carb. Should have cold crashed to remove strawberry chunks. Still tastes good.

Centennial blonde on the right.

So I made this with centennial and Amarillo last weekend. I was thinking about getting 2-4lbs of fresh strawberries. Cutting them freezing them. Then racking the beer to the keg. Cold crashingf or a day or 2. Then adding the strawberries to the keg in a strainer bag. Then letting it carb for 2 weeks. Anyone think this will work out ok ? I want to add the strawberry flavor without further fermentation. And I'm not a fan of extract. Anyone try this before ?

I just made strawberry version and think it will work your way, but there will be strawberry junk in the beer. I would cold crash before legging next time. I used 6lbs frozen berries and my wife likes but says too much berry. She is mixing 1/2 strawberry blonde with 1/2 centennial blonde, 3-4 lbs might be about right. I think it tastes fine, but is sweet.

Thanks. I'm going to give it a shot with 4 lbs in a paint strainer bag suspended with floss. Ill be back at a later date with pics.

Bottled this on Monday, drank a few today and it's great! Changed the some amounts, but pretty much followed the recipe. Will probably make this often. Thanks!

I changed the recipe a bit, but I used Cascade to bitter and Amarillo for flavor/aroma in a similar recipe to this, and used some Citra in the dry hop.

I love hoppy beers, but this one I wanted to be light and subtle for those that don't like hoppy. It's my lawnmower/BMC drinker beer.

I used .5 ounce of Citra to dry hop it to make it more fragrant, and lend a little fruit note.

I did a search in this thread and it seems that some people like the result from dry hopping with 0.5 to 1.0 oz of cascade or something similar. I'd also be interested in hearing about other experiences.

I just looked at my tasting notes from my first attempt at this recipe and it said to consider adding 0.25 to 0.50 at 0 minutes or dry hop. I'm brewing this on Friday and I think I'm going to dry hop with 0.25 oz of cascade and 0.25 oz of willamette, partly because that will use up all of my cascade and I have a bunch of willamette that I need to use up. I've also heard these two play nicely together. I do have 1.00 oz of citra that I could use instead.

I'm brewing this right now, and I'm halfway through the boil. It's the first time in quite a while that I've brewed anything, and it smells delicious!

Thanks, Biermuncher!

Since this thread won't die, I decided 300+ pages deserved a try. Just finished my brew day cleanup. Hit the O.G. and volumes dead on. The first runnings were delicious; I'm expecting a very nice summer beer.
