Notes

Plan to rack onto 4-5 lbs of freshly picked blueberries (previously frozen to preserve and partially pasteurized) in secondary fermentation.

May dry hop with an ounce or two of Saaz and/or Sorachi Ace for 2-3 days before moving to a tertiary fermentation for clarity.

Pitched yeast around 19 degrees Celsius and plan to ferment around 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit.
