Fruit: Secondary’s Best Friend

14 Dec

Dying to brew a batch of blueberry Heferweizen? How does it get all that blueberry flavor? Of course from blueberries! The addition of fruit to your secondary fermenter can drastically change the flavor of your brew, and possible the alcohol content too. Though not by much, the sugars from the fruit could possibly increase your brews strength through fermentation. An amazing forum discussing fruit in secondary here at BeerAdvocate.Com. There are helpful replies all around, and great links to sources outside the forum. One includes a discussion on how to find out how much more percentage of alcohol your really getting from fruit in the secondary. Cheers, and good luck with that secondary!
