A friend and I tried strawberry beer loosely based on Papazian's
recommendations. We added 10 lbs of crushed frozen berries after the boil
for the primary fermentation. Then we added 5 lbs of crushed frozen berries
to the secondary. I don't know how much the second addition affected
things, but we have received a number of good comments on the finished
product. We also switched to Cascade hops in regular quantities.

Question: How do I get a copy of the Conference proceedings from the AHA
this year? I was stuck on a trip and couldn't get there, but I am
interested in several of the topics that were covered.
