I brewed this in 01 and for some reason did not write that down in my log.

Sorry

Any idea on the ABV of this recipe?

http://hbd.org/cgi-bin/recipator/recipator

Says 3.5%, which seems low, but it doesn't account for the sugars of the blueberry juice...

There's no way for us to access your recipe, but a gallon will have about 12 oz of sugar in it.

I just opened and tried a Sea Dog Blue Paw wheat ale....and it is excellent....and I came on here to look for a recipe that is similar (or better)...looks like I found it!

I just bottled my version of this on Sunday... I cannot wait to try it in 3 weeks. I'll post results!

How blue is the beer? Is it straight out smurf beer?

I want to make a beer very similar but I just want a SLIGHT hint of blueberry. How strong is the flavor?

I wouldn't call it blue. Looks like a wheat beer. I'll take a picture and comment in a few weeks once its done.

I will be looking forward to your comments.

I am looking for a really subtle blueberry taste - like you will miss it if you drink it too fast. I know that blueberries have a purple color that stains easily so I want to minimize that as well. I however do NOT want to use an extract.

How many berries (in lbs) did it take to make 1 gallon?

Also, it would be nice to see how purple this beer was with 1 gallon of fruit. I plan on making an AG version of this based on a Hefe recipe I already make. I will simply tone down the wheat recipe to compensate for the sugar I think.
