I just racked my batch to a carboy for the tertiary, so far so good. The blonde ale in itself tasted amazing. Can't wait to see how it turns out with the strawberries.

Thank you for posting this recipe! It looked amazing so I had to try. So far, it's just about completed the primary and smells pretty nice (I didn't have any Ahtanum so I added some Galaxy instead).
I was wondering about the strawberries in the secondary though. Would it be better to puree and add to a glass carboy or to get a paint strainer bag and put everything into a bucket??
