Use this in the secondary, you'll find it works 10x better, and is easier.

i just kegged this recipe but with different fermentaion times. It was very hard racking into the keg even with a sterilized panty hose banded to my siphoner to help filter. with that being said the beer was very good flat. Not the most blueberry taste in the world but it is there and is balanced pretty well with nothing overwhelming the other. I also lost a gallon or so of beer due to berry absorbtion. im happy with the outcome thanks for the recipe. this beer will go very fast. This was my first fruit so didnt know what to expect.

Tomorrow marks 2 weeks on the berries. Going to taste it for the first time (tasted the base beer when I was racking onto the berries...turned out wonderful) and either leave it on the berries, or move it to a third vessel.

Have to bottle some beers for a competition, so should have keg space soon

That's a great idea! I'm thinking of brewing this next week. How much did you pour into 5 gallons? How was the flavor? Did it turn the beer blue at all?

5 pounds of puréed blueberries came out to a half gallon of chunky blueberry soup, so I'd say you'd need half gallon.

Alright, that's how it's going to happen then. Did it turn the beer blue at all?
