My second batch has been in the primary for 19 days now (a berliner weisse based on the "quick and dirty" berliner method). It hit its FG (1.009) 8 days ago. I'd like to bottle half (2.5 gallons) tomorrow and add blueberries to the other 2.5 gallons for 14 days.
I only have a primary bucket and a bottling bucket, so I'm trying to figure out the best way to add the fruit now and bottle later. For my first batch, I transferred for bottling by first adding my sugar solution to the bottling bucket and then siphoning my beer. I thought I would do the same thing with the blueberries, adding it to the bucket first; however, when it came to adding my sugar solution before bottling, I'd have to either mix it in or siphon back and forth to my priming bucket and then back into the bottling bucket.
Not sure if this got too convoluted or not, but does anyone have any suggestions for how to add the blueberries now and the sugar solution later, keeping in mind I only have 1 primary and 1 bottling bucket?
