Forget clear, it's chocolate!
Do a search here for chocolate wine. There are several threads. If you need to follow one that's blackberry, just substitute strawberry.

The type of chocolate will DEFINITELY have an impact, you may decide to use unsweetened cocoa powder, Hershey's chocolate syrup at the later stage of winemaking when the wine has already cleared and is no longer dropping any sediment, or a good chocolate extract like KayRoseWhite brand. Jack Keller gives a great overview of using Dutch Cocoa in his wineblog, http://winemaking.ja...wineblognew.asp, and he has a recipe for the wine you are seeking.
Welcome to the forum! And just remember it takes quite some time, defined as several months, closer to a year, for a wine like choc-strawberry to be ready for consumption...just my opinion and experience.

I'm just getting started on my first batch of strawberry chocolate wine.I can get a little knowledge from my brother but he is also kinda new at this.If anyone has any experience at making this combination,I would greatly appreciate any tips or any information that would point me in the right direction.I do understand there will be some trial and error but the less error would be great.One of my main concerns is what kind of chocolate and how much.I was hoping to keep the wine as clear as possible.
