I just bottled my blueberry today and I ran into some problems. The blueberries were smaller than the racking cane/tube and even the little protector thing at the end of my racking cane. The blueberries kept getting caught in there and, despite my many efforts, I could not get the flow into my bottling bucket.
I ended up having to, gasp, strain the beer from my secondary into my bottling bucket. This, obviously, created a crap load of aeration. I waited about 15 minutes and then bottled as normal. The beer looks ok, however, I wonder if my bottles will turn into bombs or my beer will be spoiled. Anybody have any news, good or bad, for me?
