Recently brewed a batch of blueberry wheat and will soon be racking to the secondary. I have a bottle of blueberry extract for bottling but I was thinking it would be nice to get some blueberry aroma too. I've seen a lot of debate on what to add to the secondary. I was thinking a bunch of fresh blueberries... again not so much for flavor or color but more for aroma.
Really hoping for sort of a biscuity blueberry pancake type thing haha.
Thoughts?

I've heard mixed opinions on the fresh/extract debate, but it's pretty much universally accepted that you want to add it to the secondary.

If it were me, I'd skip the extract and put 8 to 10 lbs per five gallons in the secondary for a week or two.
