Notes

After 8 days of primary fermentation did a diacetyl rest for 2 days at 65 degrees. Rack to secondary on top of thawed frozen blueberries and left for 10 days. Removed blueberries and slowly dropped to lagering temps. Lagered at 38 degrees for 4 weeks.

The .5oz of extract at bottling really makes the blueberry aroma come out in the beer. A clean lager with nice smooth not too sweet blueberry flavor. Hops are pretty interchangeable as the blueberry gives most of the flavor and aroma.
