Homebrew: Monster Mash

I've always held back from brewing very strong beers as I like proper drinking beer, rather than sipping beer.   However I've got plenty of beer under the stairs, so can afford to take the extra time to ferment out a strong beer & wait for it to mature that bit longer in a bottle.   I only sparged with a minimum of water, but still the OG of 1.100 took me a little by suprise though.

Mash - 1 hour 5 mins.   66ºC initially, dropping to 60ºC at the end

I ran out of beer to drink.   I discovered that my Saisons taste way better with acid malt in.   I remembered how good Tooti Fruiti (a sour, lemon & lime zest beer) tasted.   I also found loads of dried strawberries (containing no sulphites) massively discounted in a shop.   I put all these things together & a Berliner wiesse was formulated with half the brew being made with Strawberries & half with lemon.
