beer glass color indicator

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


Primary Ferment: 1 week

Procedure:

Steep crystal malt while bringing to boil. Remove grains and add extract and boiling hops. Boil 60 minutes. Add finish hops and let steep 15 minutes. Sparge into ice, mix. Rack to 7-gallon carboy. At peak of fermentation add blueberries. Ferment 1 week and rack to secondary. Prime with corn sugar.
