    When would you add the candi syrup to the recipe on this site that is called blueberry fruit beer. Also what day would you add the blueberries? Some of the recipes are unclear as to when you add the fermentable and other ingredients. Thanks for your help.

    Short answer, any time. Long answer, about 3 days in, make a thin syrup, add about half the volume of the candi syrup to the candi syrup, and boil for a few minutes to sanitize, cool, then add it to your fermentor. Beer lore has it that giving the yeast too much simple sugar at the start of fermentation makes the yeast lazy, leading to poor attenuation.

    Thank you for your response. We are new to this. We are going to brew today. We decided to brew something else yesterday. So would you put the syrup in the boil? The recipes on this site are so vague. They don't really say at what point to add the sugars and fruit. I am sorry I don't understand adding half the volume of the candi syrup to the candi syrup. We plan on racking the blueberries on day 5.
