How many pounds of blackberries to a gallon did you use? I'm thinkin' 'bout doin' a blueberry wheat the batch after this next, but haven't figured out how much fruit to use.

Allan,

I used 2 pounds of fresh blueberries. I recommend using about 4#s if you are going to use fresh blueberries. I smashed the blueberries in a 2qt stock pot down to a pulp. Heated them to 180*F and continuosly stirred them. It made a nice purple syrup. I cooled it down in an ice bath, put them into the secondary and siphoned the wheat beer onto it. Let it stand for 2 weeks and bottled. I alsp recommend that you try not to syphon the blueberries into the bottle. Those bottles that I have with the blueberries in them are a bit tart from the skins. The color of the brew is almost lavender with brown tones like a mauve. The taste is phenominal - almost like eating blueberry wheat pancakes without the maple syrup.

Hope this helps! good luck!

- WW

Thanks. Is that 2 lbs to a 5 gal. batch? I'll be makin' 10 gallons, so I'm guessin it'd be 4 lbs to 10 if I do it like you did, or 8 lbs to 10 as you recomended.

Allan

Bull,

If you wouldn't mind sharing your recipe, I'd appreciate it. Reason is I have a friend who has a buttload of blackberries that should be ready toward the end of the month, and I am going to brew something with them. It's a toss up between a wheat and a stout, but i'll probably end up doing both.
