You will get a nice secondary fermentation. If you are down to your final Gravity before adding the Blueberries Why not add a campten tab to kill the remaining yeast and let the blueberries truely soak into the beer

Only 4%? It will be plenty swee enough Id bump it 50/50 pale and wheat

Adding the campden will kill the yeast though, right? That would mean it's not an option for us bottle conditioners.

Hmm, well I'm interested in this recipe, so let me know how it turns out. I'll have to try it without the campden, but if it still works, hey.

Also, 43 calories/pint? Did you mean 143? Health beer!

If I'm not mistaken, that yeast will then start eating the sugars from the fruit AND the priming sugar, resulting in potential bombs.

It would also make it very hard to adjust the amount of priming sugar to prevent this.

...says the new guy.
