So a friend has a bunch of blackberry bushes on his property and he let me pick some, a bunch for my aunt to make jelly with and some for me to make some wine.
In my haste I went ahead and juiced the berries strained out the seeds and pulp then finally froze the juice until I have the rest of the ingredients I need to get started.
After putting away the juice I got online and started to look for recipes and to my dismay it seems all the ones I can find call for berries by the Lbs. So here I am with a quart of pure blackberry juice in the freezer and no idea how to relate that to whole berries, I'm the kind of guy that likes to follow recipes with the exactness of a chemist so I don't want to just wing it and end up with something that isn't the result the recipe would normally yield.
I'm only looking to make a one gallon batch preferably as full bodied as possible, If somebody could help me out I'd appreciate it.
While I'm thinking about it will it hurt the juice to leave it frozen?
Thanks a million to anyone willing to help
