This Winter I had pretty much the only fruit beer I ever liked. I bought it in a mixed case and don't even remember the brewery.

It was a Blueberry Oatmeal Stout and I would like to do a reasonable facsimile. Here's my first pass at a recipe:

9.00 lb Brewers Malt 2-Row (Briess) (1.8 SRM) Grain 72.0 %
2.0 lb Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM) Grain 12.0 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 120L (120.0 SRM) Grain 8.0 %
0.50 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 4.0 %
0.25 lb Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) Grain 4.0 %
.5 lb maltodextrine
1.0 oz Goldings, East Kent [6.20%] (60 min) Hops
.50 oz Centennial (60 min)
.5 EKG Aroma
Wyeast English #2 (guess at the name - I have some washed and it is good for stout.) Yeast-Ale

5 lbs frozen, macerated blueberries in secondary

Question is, is the MD a good quantity? I am thinking that a target of 018-020 for FG is about right with the blueberry.

Is 5 lbs blueberry enough for a imbuement of flavor?
