Recipe Type: All Grain Yeast: S-04 Yeast Starter: 1 packet Batch Size (Gallons): 5 Original Gravity: 1.050 Final Gravity: 1.010 IBU: 17.1 Boiling Time (Minutes): 60 Color: 4.9 SRM Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 days @ 65F Additional Fermentation: Cold Crash 3 days Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days @ 70F Tasting Notes: Smooth light body with a tiny bit of tartness that gives the beer a crisp finish. EDIT: This recipe won a gold medal at Pacific Brewer's Cup 2009. I ended up with 4.8 gallons of beer in bottles after this process, although on previous batches where I had pureed the strawberries I ended up spot-on 5 gallons. So, maybe the strawberries soaked up some of the volume? I probably will try to get another .25 gallons boil volume next time to account for this.
