Please Note: In order to better serve our customers, we are now offering our extract recipe kits with either Liquid Malt Extract (LME) or Dried Malt Extract (DME). The majority of our DME kits were converted from the LME version, which is why you may notice slight variances in the extract names and quantities on your recipe sheet. You may also find that your Specific Gravity and ABV% are slightly higher if you choose DME. Whether LME or DME, add all extracts provided according to the recipe sheet.

what type of dry yeast do you recommend?
mark on Jun 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The sfale US-05 yeast or the CellarScience CALI dry yeast are both excellent for this recipe. They keep the aroma nice and clean and free of esters allowing hops and the strawberry flavor to come through clearly.

Strawberry blonde ale is in the fermenter. Has a great flavor so far. I reached max efficiency OG. We will see. Thank you.

Better without the strawberry flavouring
I added strawberry flavouring to only half of the batch after bottling the first half. Without the flavouring this is the most popular and requested brew i've done!

Intro to brewing kit
Just finished brewing this. Needed something simple to introduce craft brewing to a friend. This was just the ticket for me.

OK
Did this one based on reviews and having enjoyed strawberry blonde brews in the past. When I brewed the beer and was ready to put the strawberry in I opened the bottle and took a smell. Quite honestly it wasn't a strawberry smell and I considered not putting it in the brew, but I did. The beer after 6 weeks is drinkable, but I wish I would have not put the strawberry in. I think it would be a better drinking beer without it. Based on other reviews I am not sure if there was an issue with the syrup as this has more of a medicine flavor from your childhood and not a mild strawberry flavor. Thankfully it is mild so it remains a beer I can drink. Lesson learned to not add a flavor to a beer if it doesn't pass the smell test. I know I have many more kits to try from MoreBeer but will stick to the plain blonde ale going forward if looking for this type of beer.

Decent summer beer
Very subtle strawberry flavor. I might have wanted it a little stronger, but I understand not wanting to overwhelm the flavor profile. All in all, it will make a decent summer beer. Last summer, I made a wheat ale kit and added a gallon of fresh picked blackberries straight to primary. It had a similar level of fruit flavor as this strawberry kit, so this is comparable to that method.

Great hot weather beer!
Very easy to drink in the hotter temps. Strawberry is there, but not over-powering. Was a quick brew day

Malty add extra corn sugar for a large head.
Great product, but I forgot to pull it off the heat when Ai poured the syrup in, so it is a little darker than it should be. Great summertime ale, paired with kabobs with beef tips, red, green and yellow peppers and yellow onion.

Great Flavor Combination
I was very skeptical about this beer, but decided to go for it. Let me tell you I'm glad I did. The beer came out smooth. Malty round nose, with a very slight strawberry finish. I've got this on tap in my co working space and everyone loves it.

Perfect summer beer. Will make again.
