Notes

End of mash: approximately 8.5 gal. boiled for 1.5 hours, evaporated approximately 1.5 gallons. (heavy boil) Added the hops with approximately 7 gallons, and started timer. Boiled for 60min and ended up with 5.25 gallons. Had quite a bit of trub loss. *should have lowered boil to control the evaporation rate, and followed beersmith directions. In secondary: add strawberry and corn sugar. Prepare corn sugar: 1 lb, in 1.5 gallons of water boiled for 10 minutes. Prepare strawberry: 4 lbs diced, covered in vodka for 24 hours to sanitize. **secondary in 6 gallon plastic bucket with strawberries in strainer bag to help increase clarity. Previous batch: puree strawberries and placed directly into secondary fermenter: taste was excellent, but beer was very cloudy.
