It's been 5 days since it was kegged up and I thought I would give this a try. Carbonation seems just right, the foam sticks to the side of the glass a bit and is around for a little while. This brew was the from a recipe called Centennial Blonde. It's supposed to be 4% but I missed a little and I'm at 3.75%. This is a light beer, the lightest beer I've had for a homebrew. The strawberries are there, but it's more of a tartness than anything else. Very refreshing!

So I'm calling this a win, got 5 gallons on tap. Should be perfect for my lawn mowing days that are coming up. Thanks again for all the tips and tricks you guys offered.

Cheers!

I do a strawberry cream ale with 48 ounces (mine, not the canned stuff). I add to primary at day 3 or 4. I add a little strawberry extract to the keg.
