    That may be a good plan, just to keep it bitter-ish

    I brew an English mild and several ordinary bitters that are big on flavor but low on alcohol,
    look at my recipes in the pull down below my name and see if you like anything... Maybe we can
    assist in ...

    I would try and thaw, then pick the debris out as best you can, the wee little blueberry stems

    wrong...EDIT: nev...

    Mine went strong for 4-5 days and slow bubbling (1-2 a minute) for another 2 days. I'm on day 8

    I brewed this about 9 weeks ago, and finally opened a bottle last night. The brew spent 5 weeks
    in primary (my usual time is 4 - 6 weeks) and 4 weeks carbing in the bottle. According to my
    wife, this ...
