Beer Style: Fruit Beer (20A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 gallons

Fruit Beer

Description:

When I tasted this during the bottling stage there was not much blueberry flavor. More blueberries may be required to give a stronger taste. The beer came out remarkably clear with a nice reddish tint.

Ingredients:

  • 7 pounds, British amber extract
  • 1-1/2 pounds, crystal malt
  • 2 ounces, Northern Brewer hops (boil)
  • 1 ounce, Fuggles hops (finish)
  • Whitbread ale yeast
  • 2 pounds, fresh frozen blueberries

Additional Instructions

Primary Ferment: 1 week
