    When did you remove the bag from the fermenter?

    On the 23rd, the fruits were spent and shrunk down to about 10% of what I started with. I should've left them in longer but didn't think it would make a difference.

    I think I will leave the bag in one more day, still a bit of pulp.

    It won't hurt. I have a 2nd batch started a day later and left the bag in till it hit 1.000. I need to rack it again. It cleared just as good as the first batch.

    The blueberries are the driver for the color. I’ve made blueberry only versions (I call it “Jet Blue”) that are virtually the same color as the triple berry batches. Leaving the the skins in there until it reaches 1.000 makes all the difference in color and flavor. Trust me. I’ve made hundreds of batches.

    I have left the bag in. Checked the SG last night(2nd night) and it was 1.061(dropped .015). Hopefully by this evening it has dropped a considerable amount.
