PS sorry for not responding to your pm
Not a problem. I appreciate the info!

How's it looking?

Mine is three years old (i think) I had a glass the other day, still good, very mellow. I should start a new batch sometime soon.

I racked it on a new 16oz batch of blueberries on 1/21. Not sure how long I am gonna let it sit there.

Matt, did yours smooth out a ton over time? All the flavor is still there for mine, but it is just incredibly mellow. Dwavs that's a beautiful looking carboy right there, I love that deep purple color

Thanks! I will probably let it sit until mid march and that will at least put a couple of months on it prior to bottling.

Sorry for the delayed response:
Yes, It definitely did. I love sipping on it every now and then. I'm glad I made 5 gallons!

I cracked a 5th of this the other day after it had been aging for many months... it's super smooth, slightly sweet, 900 kinds of amazing. It's killing me that it's going to be months before the next batch finishes.

So after reading this thread top to bottom I had to make a version of this, and I don't know how much longer I can wait to try it. Here was my version:

Started on 2/25/12
5 gal Whitehouse Apple Cider
32oz Blueberry Juice
3lbs Frozen Blueberries
1.5lbs Brown Sugar
5oz package Blueberry Craisins
4 Bavarian Wildberry tea bags steeped in about 3 cups water
Pectic Enzyme / Yeast Nutrient
Nottingham Yeast
OG was 1.062

I only let it sit for two weeks before most of blueberries looked pretty grey. On 3/11/12 I racked onto another 3lbs of blueberries, and I don't know if I can hold out as long as I had planned on. I wanted to leave it sit until at least June. Thanks for the great idea for this (already) delicious creation!
