A simple enough question for thoughtful answers. Some good recipes out there for Strawberry Blondes. All the normal tips are understood, i.e., 1#/gal, strawberries will likely kickstart fermentation in a secondary, strawberries will bleach out and really look awful at the end of the secondary so do not be afraid, among other tips.
My wife is going to pick local strawberries and freeze them. I expect her cut the caps prior to freezing.
Any thoughts as to washing the strawberries in StarSan prior to freezing to assist in surface cleansing? Or should I consider the "environment of the beer" to hostile for real bacterial contamination to take hold and just simply "rinse them thoroughly in the sink"?
