Advice on Blueberry Ale?
I'm looking for somesthing a bit sweet with a lot of blueberry flavor, something the wife will like. Here is a recipe I've cobbled together from several different recipes, let me know what you think and give me any suggestions to make this better. Thanks!
9.00 lbs 2 row malt
0.50 lbs Vienna malt
0.50 lbs Crystal malt (10L)
0.50 oz Willamette hops (5.0%) 60 min
0.50 oz Willamette hops (5.0%) 15 min
1.00 pkg Dry yeast (American ale)
4.00 lbs Blueberries (canned puree or canned whole)
Mash at 152 F for 60 min
I'm considering adding the blueberry in the primary, but only after fermentation has stopped, then transferring to secondary a week later to clear up some.
I was also going to pick up some blueberry extract just in case there is not enough blueberry flavor at kegging time.
