I had this problem with a Dubbel once. I just opened them for about 1 min and recapped and it worked. That beer won a second place.

My wife and I picked them right around my parents house in the UP of Michigan near Lake Superior. We got into the zone and picked 20 lbs, however, we weren't the only ones picking them - we discovered some fresh bear poop about 50 yards from the house.I'm using wild blueberries which always seem more sweet to me than the store bought ones. I think I'm going to use 7 lbs and I can always use some extract later in the keg if it's not enough.
Wild blueberries have a much stronger flavor per lb as well. I think 7 lbs is a good starting point and can I say that I am so jealous that you have 7 lbs of wild blueberries in your freezer.
After 20 years of homebrewing, did a triple decoction on a Bo-Pils. Not sure I will ever do it again. The taste of the finished beer will decide that. It was a long day!That must have been a grueling day..My hat's off to you, I've only managed two double decoctions and I did like the taste of those beers a lot. The second one I did a Hochkurz double and I hit my numbers dead on.
Here's the recipeI just brewed my second creation of a Belgian IPA the other day. Tons of Munich with Cascade, Citra, and Nugget. The yeast is Wyeast 3522 which worked great on the last one. No brewing this weekend, but our club is having a picnic/pig roast on Sat. and then I'm leaving for the UP in Michigan for 10 days
Would love to see your hop schedule on the Belgian. Sounds great.
