st: calculating means by group, with weights

I am trying to calculate the mean of a variable ("income") across groups ("bracket"), but using the relevant survey weights (variable "weight"). I tried saying:

bys bracket: egen float meanincome = mean(income) [fweight=weight]

but this is not possible since the egen command does not allow for weighting. This is a problem for me as if I do not use the weights the means will be wrong. 

Is there any way of doing this?

Thank you in advance...
