i did that recipe and ended up with a 1.060, so be cautious of your eff lol
i would STRONGLY urge you not to use 2-3 pounds per gallon.
i did a blueberry stout over the winter, its in bottles now and barely drinkable. makes great pancakes, tho, so its not a waste!
I used 10lbs of forzen blueberries, let them thaw, smushed them around a litte (not in a juicer or anything, just pressed on the bag a little), and added them to secondary.
the beer tastes nothing like beer and is more like a blueberry,stouty wine. awful.
What about adding some blueberry extract at bottling in addition to the fruit?
