How do you add blueberries to beer?
You need to crush your fruit into puree, boil them in a bit of water to sanatize, cool down the puree/water mix to about 70F, put the fruit/water mixture into a secondary fermenter, and rack your wort on top of the puree mix.
How much beer is in a blueberry?
Blueberry (fresh/frozen): Use 2 lbs of blueberries per gallon of wort to get a good blueberry flavor. Use less for subtle flavors. Strawberry (fresh/frozen): Use 1.5 to 2 lbs of strawberries per gallon of wort. Peach (fresh/frozen): Use 1.5-2 lbs of peaches per gallon of homebrew.
How do you make beer with fruit?
Utilize between 1-2 lbs of fruit per gallon of beer. The mid-point is my preferred ratio. Add the fruit to the secondary fermentor and rack the fermented beer onto the fruit. You want to bring some yeast with you when you rack off your beer to ensure a robust secondary fermentation.
Do they still make Wild Blue beer?
This beer is no longer being produced by the brewery.
How much puree do you add to beer?
To use the puree, simply open the bag and pour the product into the fermenter, barrel or any type of aging vessel. Factor about 1 to 2 pounds of puree to 1 gallon of finished beer. After that, recycle the box and discard the bag.
How can I make my blueberry flavor stronger?
Toss them in sugar, honey, or maple syrup, along with a little fresh juice or alcohol (an herbal liqueur, like elderflower spirit, would be great). You don’t need a lot to get the berries rocking; a quarter- to a half-cup of juice or booze, and about double the amount of sugar, is all you need.
How do you add frozen fruit to beer?
Fresh fruit should be peeled, frozen, and thawed, while frozen fruit should just be thawed to avoid shocking the yeast in the fermenter. You could also add fruit juice or puree to the secondary fermenter. I suggest using 100% juice without preservatives or artificial colors and flavorings.
How do you sanitize fruit for beer?
To sanitize the fruit, but avoid extracting pectins, you can steep the fruit in hot wort after boiling. At lower temperatures — between 160–170° F — pectins from the fruit will not be extracted but the heat will still kill any microorganisms on the fruit.
How do you make flavored beer?
Heat your wort with water, steep, then add hops and boil, add more hops as you begin to cool, once cool enough add yeast, ferment, bottle. Flavored beers can be made a bunch of different ways. You can add herbs, spices, or flavorings before or after the boil, for example.

Is there a blue beer?
A Japanese company is making a beer that’s actually blue. Abashiri Brewery in Hokkaido has a blue brew the company claims is naturally blue. That means no artificial dyes and no Walter White-made meth mixed in either. The blue color comes from blue seaweed, flowers, water from melted icebergs and Chinese yam.
