Ok, I went home and stirred the blueberries/blackberries but I noticed what I believe to be a few spots of fur growing on about 8 blueberries. I probably screwed up, but I didn't really see it until after I was already stirring it around. What are the likely results from this? It is still actively fermenting (bubbles every 2-3 seconds).

Hophead-I can't answer your question, but your fruit wine sounds tasty. Your own recipe? Willing to share?

Real simple recipe, it's my first wine experiment so I thought simple would be better. Planned on a 3 gal recipe, but it's closer to 5. I wanted to make a blackberry wine, but there were no frozen berries to be found without paying $$$$.

10 lbs. Frozen Blueberries
2 lbs. Fresh Blackberries
8 lbs. sugar
71b-1122 Lalvin Yeast
1 Tsp Yeast nutrient
Added about 1.25 gallons of water
OG is around 1.122, should finish around 13% or so and hopefully semi-sweet

Only 5 days in, so we'll see how it goes
