I just mixed up a Blueberry Cyser, and thought I'd make a thread in case you guys wanted to follow along and/or give me some tips.

Day 1:

3 gal unfiltered raw apple juice
~3 lbs honey ('Mountain Gold' variety. It's made about 20 miles from where I live. The bees hang out around a lot of mountain wildflowers.)
0.25 gal (1 quart) blueberry juice
1 packet Pasteur Champagne yeast
3 tsp yeast nutrient

SG: 1.082 (~11% ABV at dryness)

I mixed it all up and sprinkled the yeast on top. I'm thinking about adding frozen blueberries in the secondary. Any suggestions on how much? Also when should I rack to secondary. I'm thinking I'll check in 4 weeks. Is that too long?

If you can get wild blueberries use them. They are much smaller than the one

you see at the grocery store but they are twice as sweet. I get my wild

blue berries in frozen 3# bags I forget the brand name but 3# would sound about right for your recipe
