Getting ready to transfer my strawberry/cranberry mead, and can't get over how much soft fluffy sediment there is. I've dealt with this many times with our mango wines so there's no problem with dealing with it, but man... this was just 9 lbs of fresh strawberries in about 7 gallons; sheesh! I can only imagine what a 100% strawberry wine would look like. :)

I did a fresh strawberry wine a while back, 100# worth, no water added. You can check out the pics on the second page to see the sediment I had in mine: The Strawberry

Wow, that one pic after degassing really shows how some of these fruits are harder to get wine out of. :) Yours looked roughly a little less than half. Again, wow. :) I didn't think anything was going to be as bad as mango, but looks like strawberry is the new winner! :)
