I'm looking for an AG Blueberry Wheat recipe to brew for my wife (I like it too). I've considered just brewing a wheat and adding the blueberry extract, but she really wants some purple color to the beer.

Any suggestions? Just add a couple of bags of crushed blueberries at secondary?

I am planing on using this my first home brew but I am going to substitute huckleberry for the blueberry. I will let you know how it turns out.

I made an extract blueberry wheat recently that turned out pretty good. The color is extremely purple though. I put 5 lbs. of slightly crushed frozen blueberries in the secondary for about a week.

Initially I felt like it was a little tart, but it's grown on me as it's aged some. I think if I do it again though, I might cut back to 3 lbs.

I'm going to try brewing this recipe soon...sounds delicious!

I'm wondering if I need to do anything special to sanitize the blueberries while juicing them, or is adding the juice at flame out enough to sanitize it? If i do add the juice at flame-out, should I wait a while before chilling the wort to help sanitize?

Also, since the blueberry juice is added into the wort, won't most of the sugars be fermented? I'm just wondering if I will be able to taste the blueberry flavor in the final product if the juice is added in the wort as opposed to adding it after some or all fermentation is complete.

Thanks for any help!

I was thinking of doing a blueberry wheat beer, but I was gonna do it similar to a blue berry wine. Crush the berries and add them in a nylon bag, add a small amount of water and sugar (to match the worts og) and a campden tablet and let it sit for 24 hours and add it into the wort on secondary, and let it ferment out in secondary. If you add blue berries in the primary you will get a fermented fruit flavor which is a reason to add it to secondary, you will get more of a berry flavor...
