Jay Stoltenberg's Strawberry Wheat

5 Gal Extract

2 - 3lb bags of Plain Wheat dry malt
1 pound fresh strawberries no stems, cut into s or 1/3s at t-minus 15 minutes
1 oz. Tettnang pellet hops 3.6% acid at t-minus 10 minutes
1 package Nottingham yeast
cup of priming sugar
Starting gravity 1.055
Final gravity 1.010

Jay brought some of this to the October '04 Meeting and I found it very tasty. It had a mild strawberry flavor that I personally liked better than many of the more overpowering fruit beers. If you like more strawberry flavor - add more strawberries.
