Ready to bottle that fast? Not that I'm likely to get 6 quarts of blueberries off my bushes at this point, but maybe I can raid my neighbor's patch. He'll settle for a bottle or two in return.

So how important is the campden tablet when using store bought frozen blueberries? Is there any particular amount of boiling that can minimize or eliminate the wild yeast?

I'll be picking up some fresh blueberries today to give this a try. I think I'll try a 5 gallon batch. I wish I would've gotten my hands on one of those $85 wine presses on Amazon. I'll probably just make a bucket press.

Here's what I'm thinking:

15 lbs blueberries
10 lbs sugar
1 tbsp acid blend
1 tbsp pectic enzyme
1 tsp potassium metabisulfite
1 tbsp yeast nutrient

Dissolve sugar in 2 gallons of water. Crush the blueberries. Add the dissolved water and potassium metabisulfite to the crushed blueberries. Let sit for two days.

Press the juice. Add acid blend, pectic enzyme and yeast nutrient and top up with water to 5 gallons. Rack as necessary until bottling.

My 5 gallon batch started at 1.092 and ended at .996. I think that it's ready to bottle. It smells great. It tastes great. It has that "real wine" flavor that I didn't expect. The blueberry character doesn't really come through very strongly. It's nice and dry with just a little heat. I think that after a few months in a bottle it will be really good.

I used Motrachet in mine. It's my first blueberry wine. I've done 2 muscadine grape batches and Montrachet worked very well in those.

Blueberry(recent) in the front and Muscadine(10 months) in the rear
