Notes

Lactic acid used 10ml and pH was 5.4

Pre-boil gravity 1.055 after 5lbs of blueberries 1.065.

FG 1.012 before 5lbs of blueberries in secondary. FG before kegging is 1.010. 7.22%

Aug 2019 beer contest 25/50 did not feel there was any malt or hop flavor. Thought blueberry was heavy for a beer.

another judge thought terrible. 13/50. Diacetyl butter cleaning soluvent. Thought no hop flavor or yeast.


I tried same recipe with peach. 3.9 gal mash 2.9 gal sparge. I added 2 gallon through grain to get the preboil volume to 6 gal (too much water?) I did not check gravity before adding water. OG after and before peach (5Lb added in spider at flameout, (canned purred)) was 1.045. 7 days later FG and at time of adding 5 Lbs peaches (canned pureed) was 1.008 using same yeast as before. After 8 days FG is 1.040-1.030 After secondary peach addition there was what seemed to be yeast activity but not sure how accurate FG is after the peaches.
