Way too soon to bottle.

as mentioned, but not highlighted at the end, you need to take your current gravity. you may have had a stuck fermentation, and i will tell you from experience, it will be far too sweet and not taste good LOL

I'm absolutely NOT an expert on beer brewing yet. However, I just brewed a blueberry wheat yesterday that came in an ingredient kit put together by my local brew shop. Other than the standard ingredients, the recipe called for and came with 1 can of blueberry pie filling which was warmed and added to the fermenter (i.e. not actually brewed). The wort has been in the fermenter for less than 12 hours and is bubbling away through the airlock. The kit also comes with a bottle of that flavoring stuff. It says to only use half of that during racking. Maybe this is helpful. Maybe not.

( : Cheers

+1 also fruit (or any kind of simple sugar) usually are added after primary is complete because the yeast eat up the easily consumable sugars first and then become, well, lazy. so they more complex sugars don't get converted. should still be fine though. take your readings and if you think you need to, you can always add more yeast.
