I brewed up a batch of this two weeks ago, and added six pounds of puréed blueberries tonight. Those things turn the beer purple really fast. I'm really looking forward to trying this next month.

Last batch I made I used 5 lbs of a mixed berry blend from the frozen section of the grocery store, it was fantastic! And also a bit of a change up of my usual recipe

Also, I've got it in Blonde Ale category (light hybrid). Is that pretty accurate? All the numbers were perfect for Blonde Ale. Never brewed a fruit beer before, and this is the lightest SRM beer I've brewed also.
I am having your same issue, can you let me know what you changed to get BeerSmith2 to be right?

I have my beer in light hybrid in my notes, and when I have entered it in competitions I have used light hybrid as the base style with good results.

I was wondering could I substitute blueberry pie filling instead of fresh blueberries?

I would opt for frozen blueberries as opposed to pie filling, it's still just fruit, without any of the pie filling goo added in.

I brewed up a version of this recipe and everyone has loved it! I'm also having the same problem with Beersmith giving a very high IBUs when I know it's not.

Sorry for reviving the old thread but does anyone know how to resolve the beersmith IBU issue? Do I just roll with the recipe as is? I'm showing almost 50 IBUs.

I think it's the way beer smith calculates the first wort hopping addition that causes the issue, I never get complaints about over hoped flavor!
