i've bumped the pale to 7 lbs which brings the alc content to ~5%
btw sigafoos it will have ~203 cal
I'm hoping the tartness of the blueberries will balance with the sweetness munich. i guess we'll see. I may also add a few drops of pectinase to prevent haze.

i made a few adjustments and the wife and I brewed this 2 weeks ago. When fermentaion (FG = 1.009) was complete we transferred to secondary with 3 lbs of blueberries. It began to bubble for a day; its been 4 days and FG is now 1.008. That's a bit lower than I hoped for. I'll let it sit for another week or so then age in keg for about 6 weeks. I'll keep those interested updated.

I'd like to know how much blueberry flavor the beer has. I just reread the fruit beers section in Designing Great Beers, and he recommends 2 lbs per gallon of beer for blueberries as they're a more mild fruit. The 3 lbs in your recipe seems a little low, but if it works and I don't have to buy a lot more than I need, then all the better.

Its still in the secondary but I tasted it and the blueberry flavor seems non-existant.
so maybe a few more pounds would help?

yea if you dont stop the ferment- It will ferment the flavor out.

Id ad a can of the blueberry puree after a campden tab. Thats if you are kegging.

Or add a can to your botteling busket.

it's been two years almost to the day since the last post here, but i just put a blueberry ale in the primary and am wondering about blueberry ratio.

Does anyone have any new updates/experience on this? i'll blueberry the $hit out of it in the secondary if needed, but this is one of those beers i dont want to over fruit and therefore waste the entire batch. i'd rather deal with too little fruit flavor/aroma than too much of it.

thanks

Default blueberry ale clone

I'd like to attempt to replicate the Wachusett blueberry ale. It says it's a wheat ale with 3 grains and 3 hops. since the beer is clear and there is no purple color, it must be with blueberry extract instead of fresh blueberries, right? any other advice on what two grains to use besides some wheat? thanks
