I just bottled my HefeWeissen, I bottled about three gallons and left two in the secondary. I then threw a pound or so of blueberries (that I pasteurized) into the rest of the brew that was in the secondary. I can't wait to try the weissen this spring and I can't wait to bottle the blueberry wheat next week.

That second fermentation from the blueberries is to be expected, right? And, is the abv gonna go up because of this?

I didn't really see a question that could be answered, sorry.

BTW- it's weizen (wheat) or weisse (white) but not 'weissen'.

Um, I lived in Eching, Bavaria. It can be any of them, the -en just means its plural. And here's the question I asked:

since you are adding more sugar with the berries, you should expect additional fermentation and an increse in ABV (although, it might only be a small amount.)

Sorry, didn't realize that was a question - thought was more of a rhetorical thing.

When I lived in Prussia (Berlin) I would have been laughed at and quickly corrected if I had referred to a beer type in the plural sense.

Must be a Bavarian thing.

when I lived in germany (Stuttgart) the plural form was often used when talking about beer types.

Must be a BERLIN thing.
