I feel ya bull

We just finished bottling our blackberry wheat inspired by your thread before. I opened the primary up tonight to rack it into the secondary and it was so clear I decided just to skip the secondary and bottle it right away. I think that might turn out good because I understand this type of beer is allowed to be cloudy.

But you know what was surprising ? The Bananas! I totally was not expecting that, the banana smell is very strong. Fortunately when I tasted it, it didn't taste of bananas, but it also didn't have near as much blackberry flavor as I was hoping for. Next time I try it I'm going to go with 6oz blackberry extract instead of 4, or possibly try some real fruit.

Like you, I'm really looking forward to drinking it. It really does smell good. The overflow where the fermentation blew out the airlock smelled like a blackberry muffin factory exploded.

Anyway, I'm going to try and let it sit for a couple weeks in the bottles before I break down and drink it. Had to have a taste tonight while I was bottling it, but other than that going to do my best to wait it out with ya.

I tried it again last spring, but I split mine in two and did 1/2 black berry and 1/2 peach. The peach was kind of "meh" but the black berry was really good - it didn't last long. I'll do it again this year when the black berries come in.
