2 gallons of mashout @212°F.
Sparge water @ 170°F

actual OG was 1.053
FG before blueberries 1.014
FG post blueberries 1.014

6# of frozen blueberries in secondary, and repitch with s-05 slurry from a prior batch. Let this secondary ferment cool to pull some of the peachy esters from the s-05.

As opposed to many commercial beers, the blueberry flavor is up front and lingers, a noticeable sweetness lingers as the base earthy flavor cleans up the palette.

This was made for my sisters wedding, I only had 2 weeks in the keg so there was a little bit of carb bite. but not noticeable unless you knew what you were looking for.

I also let it sit in a bright tank for 4 weeks. I didn't have a keg to rack it into. So once I picked up some from keggle brewing and Craig's list, I cleans those and racked into that.

Please add your tasting notes after you make it. I sat it on gas for 2 weeks at 20 psi. A little more carbonation to suit the fruitiness.

Hey i really like the recipe and plan on doing my first all grain batch an would like to do this one i had a few questions about some stuff i didn't understand due to my lack of knowledge.

The blueberry flavoring is that a liquid extract you can but from a brew store or is it just blueberries.

Also I didn't understand the part about the 6# of frozen blueberries and re pitch the s-05 what does that mean. And sorry I'd this is a stupid question I'm still very new to brewing

the blueberry flavoring is an extract from my LHBS. i added 6#(pounds) of frozen blueberries in secondary. after it warmed up, I added s-05 yeast. adds a different flavor when fermented cooler. any other questions just ask!

What was the final color on this recipe? My grandma recently passed and I want to brew a blueberry something for her because she loved fruity wheat beers and her favorite color was purple. Sounds kinda odd, I know, but I just want to do it.
