Blueberry Pale Ale or Blueberry ESB?
Ok, we have a Pale Ale in the fermenter that we are considering adding some Frozen Blueberries in the secondary, OR we have an ESB kit that we were considering using them in as well, which we could add them at the end of boil or in the primary.

We have approx 8 lbs of Blueberries so it should be enough for either option.

Just asking for opinions as to which way to go to maximize the flavors of the blueberries in the beer.

I'd go with the blueberry pale ale unless its really heavily hopped, like in exess of 35 IBU's would probably not go well with blueberries.

Blueberry ESB? :eek:

Sorry, but that just doesn't sound right.

I think the Blueberry flavor would come through much better in a Pale Ale. ESB is a pretty heavy beer and I think the flavor would just get muddled. . ..
