Default Homemade Blackberry Brandy.

So this is my first time trying this. I bought a 5 gallon glass jug,yeast and a water lock. I used 6 packs of blackberries 3 lemons 1 pound of raisins 1 5lb bag of sugar and the yeast with 2 gallons of water and 2 5ths of ever clear. Mixed it all together very well and put the water air lock on the top. I just hope the ever clear let's the yeast still do its thing with the sugar. I really don't know. Time will tell I guess??

I think the everclear will/has killed the yeast. Yeast and liqour don't mix.

Yeah I would not expect much fermentation out of that. Maybe if you made it in a toilet?

What you probably wanted to do was let fermentation finish and THEN mix it with the everclear. Where'd you get that recipe? I hope everclear wasn't that expensive for you, because I think you might have wasted it.

It won't ferment at all but if you let it age for a while, as in close to a year, it might not be bad. You kind of sort of made lemonchello with blackberries instead of lemons.
