Strawberry Cream Ale & Jam

This week, strawberries went on sale, so I brewed up some Strawberry Wine, Strawberry Cream Ale, and made some jam to go with the Spent Grain Bread  that I made from the Cream Ale grains.

2 Pounds Fresh Strawberries
4 Cups Sugar

Mix together the strawberries, and sugar, stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil. I generally keep the boil going for a bit and put the hot jam, in hot jars heated in water. This makes a kind of chunky runny jam which I like. If you want it a little thicker, you might want to add a little something to gel it up a bit

This is my attempt at a Strawberry Cream Ale. I couldn't really get a exactly what I wanted, so we'll see how it turns out. It sure smelled good while brewing.
