Very nice looking bucket of blackberries! Did they come off wild brambles or do you grow them? Sweet corn wine sounds good. I came close to making a run of it but ate all the corn. I got a five gallon batch of blackberry in the secondary tha I am going to rack off the fruit sediments next weekend. It started at 1102 so it is pretty close to yours. Mike

Looks like fun, I have been picking about 10 pounds every other night off of my bushes, hope to start some wine and maybe a port soon. Funny you mention sweet corn, I have some extra and was thinking of doing the same thing. Do you have a recipe for what did with the corn?
