Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.047   
Final Gravity: 1.017   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days   
Tasting Notes: Super good Blueberry Wheat Beer   

6 lbs DME Wheat
1 oz Tettnager (bitter)
1 gallon blueberry juice

We juiced a whole flat of fresh blueberries for this. Boiled 1.5 gallons of water with malt and hops. Added juice add flame out. cooled to 100 degrees and added to 3 gallons of water.

Tasted better than Sea Dog Blue Paw!!!

(consider uping bittering hops a bit)

How did it turns out? I'm thinking of trying this next. I tried out a strawberry blonde extract recipe that ended up being quite dry

It came out OK but if I do this again I am going to use a bit more hops. I did a strawberry blonde that I like better.

How much yeast did you add? 2 packets?
by bittering with hops, do you mean add more than 1 oz tettnags or add 1 oz?
Did you get your gallon of blueberry juice by juicing or did you add the juice to the juice from pressing the flat? Haha, sorry if that is confusing.

This will probably be my first brew after a Mr Beer kit. I'm excited!

1 packet of dried yeast.

Maybe 2 oz total tettnags for 60 mins

We juiced a whole flat of fresh berries and got a gallon of juice.

Hope this helps, let me know how it comes out.

would a bottle of the blueberry flavoring per five gallons go just as good as job as the blueberry juice?

It would still be a good beer but not the SAME beer. The 1 gallon of freshly juiced blueberries added a unique character to the beer the flaovoring will not.

But like I said, it will still be good beer!!!

Enjoy and let me know how it comes out.
